QUATRO ELEMENTOS

Quatro Elementos (Four Elements) was structured around the cosmogonic idea of the Natural Elements – that has inspired thinkers over the ages and continues to influence contemporary artistic practice in its various different areas, in particular in the visual arts.
Four curators were invited to develop an exhibition project and each was assigned an Element.

Ana Luísa Amaral - Water, Eduarda Neves - Earth, Nuno Faria - Air, Pedro Faro - Fire

This was a quasi-animistic exhibition about the more or less material representation of the Water, Earth, Fire and Air in the work of artists, writers and other thinkers. This exhibition proposed to visit the Elements, using multiple languages, in an isolated or contaminated manner, questioning their complex manifestations in the absence or presence of human action.
This book can be acquired at the Galeria Municipal do Porto.
