Livraria Sá da Costa, Rua Garrett, 100-102, 1st floor, Chiado

The approach of the theme “ruin” has been recurrently treated by artists throughout time, with particular emphasis since Romanticism – often approached from an ontological perspective, reflecting on the intrinsic fragility of man’s destiny in this world – reinterpreting at other times the vestiges survivors of a historical memory forever eluded in the unrecoverable thread of successive time, and more recently with the advent of modernism, as ethical reflection on social praxis, or simply as a game of deconstruction and reconstruction of new harmonies. It is an exhibition made up of drawings and objects.
