O Corredor e seu próprio corredor, 2013
Acrylic and collage on raw canvas
I appropriate the corridor (corredor) that connects the entrance to MAM to the Great Hall not only physically, but metaphorically. I make use of some of the meanings of the word corredor (that means in Portuguese “corridor” and “runner“), such as “stretch that connects two spaces”, “a person who runs” and the Portuguese legend that says that the seventh son who is not baptized by the first son will become a corredor, someone who runs during the night, undergoing several metamorphoses.
