“TARMACADAM is a group show of six artists: Ana Linhares, Diana Carvalho, Hernâni Reis Baptista, Mónica Lacerda, Paulo Osório and Raquel Moreira, built from the space in which is presented: two empty rooms in an office building. The construction of a collective body of work arises as an opportunity to reflect on the identity (or lack thereof) in a transient state that features the time and place in which it is developed, taking also into account an observation beyond the walls of the space that it occupies. This series of works, materialized individually, reflects different ways of thinking about this issue; either through a direct reading of the space, or what is going on around it, in the streets; be it for what will come, or just by transforming one image into another, uncategorized. In line with the idea of transition, it is proposed two periods of presentation. The mutation of the pieces suggests an allegory for everything else that goes around, unveiling different stages of the creation process, a making and remaking that does not end at the exhibition opening.
