House of Tigre (House of Tiger) is an unprecedented exhibition by the artists Ana Manso and João Marçal in the Saco Azul/Maus Hábitos exhibition room, in which several works by both artists taken from the domestic context, that is, previously visible in their shared house in Lisbon, are presented.

The exhibition culminates in the presentation of work carried out by the two in a collaborative way, produced specifically for this occasion, being accompanied by a publication containing a conversation between the artists and the couple of curators, in which various aspects of artistic practice are addressed, focusing in particular on the main differences between an individualized practice and a collective or shared practice.
