Casa para Outros · 2013
with Angelo Lopes and Rita Rainho (Oficina de Utopias).
Site-specific installation: shack house / camera obscura.
With this installation, we wanted to make the periphery’s reality present in the city center of Mindelo. The visitor was invited to enter the casa de tambor (shack house), a place which simbolically translated an inverted reality. The interior was darkened and transformed into a camera obscura, allowing an inverted image of the outside world to be projected onto the inside walls.
Constructors: Jorge Andrade, José Évora, Ravi Santos, Stefan Andrade.
Part of Temporary Occupations initiative, Next Future program, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
