Livraria Sá da Costa – Editora | Praça Luís de Camões, 22, 4th Floor, Lisbon
In this exhibition, Miguel Palma presents ‘KM Zero’ (2017) and ‘Labirintos’ (2017), respectively, a sculpture and a set of drawings – two works that reveal the imaginary effects of an earthquake of great intensity.
‘Labirintos’, a group of approximately 80 drawings, composed by the juxtaposition of colourful stains of acrylic paint and collages of machines, architectures and diverse vehicles. The pictorial component refers to aerial views of an imaginary territory. Eventual racing tracks, frequencies and vibrations of possible seismic, radio and light waves. It is the track left by the brush, when subjected to a constant, almost mechanical movement, applied by the artist, through which abstract coloured effects are created: circles, ellipses, letters of the alphabet or a rainbow.
In the center of the room, populated with drawings, is a sculpture that temporarily destroys the stability that could still exist in this building.
