Galeria Arte Graça, Λισαβόνα

Desired (Im)possibilities opens on Thursday 9 November at Galeria Arte Graça in Lisbon with works by Eunice Gonçalves Duarte, Irit Batsry, Juliana Matsumura, Natalie Woolf, Sofia Sá, Pinelopi Triantafyllou, Lior Eshel, Laurence Bonvin, Tiago Rocha Costa και Andrea Paz.

There is a sense of order in nature, a pattern prescribed to things, a cyclical sequence that forms, nurtures, destroys, and recreates everything. And life invariably adheres to this order. From the changing seasons to birth and death, everything is part of a cycle. All living organisms are born, they grow, they consume or produce, and they eventually die, giving space for new life to come.
The exhibition features 10 works exploring different modes of dealing with the duality of [Im]possibilities. Some of them encompass personal experiences of success and failure, the interplay of doubt and certainty, hope and disappointment, reason and irrationality, or the visible and the unseen. While others question their artistic practices by experimenting with the boundaries of materials, and their representations.
Above all, “Desired (Im)possibilities” serves as a profound celebration of the human spirit, acknowledging its boundless potential to transform, recreate, adapt, reclaim, and continually reinvent itself.
