'FÃS' | Sara & André
Cycle "The Politics of images", with curatorship by João Baeta
"Fãs picks up a set of images collected in 2010 for an editorial project that never came to fruition, materializing now in the form of retro-lit photographic prints. To the original set of images, some new ones were added. It was from this new set that we selected the ones that we considered better, taking into account the current presentation format. There may be several interpretations of these photographs and we don’t want to add or withdraw possibilities, except for the most obvious one: a hall that becomes a mirror, or a window, into the room in whose entrance we wait."
