Underdogs Capsule EVENT
The set of images that make up this showcase are a continuation of the work begun by the artist in East Timor. With patterns and techniques of basketry and weaving gathered from the country’s various regions, the images, with direct or indirect relations between themselves, are interwoven, following typical patterns widely used in that corner of the world. The repetitive character contrasts with the apparent disorganisation of the forms, imprinting them with a visually appealing aesthetic touch, of balance, almost pleasure. It also intends to pay tribute to a centuries-old handcrafted art trivialised and practiced mostly by women.
