THE COLLECTION IN FAMALICÃO: MY HOME IS YOUR HOME
from 01 OCT 2018 to 02 JUN 2019
IMAGES OF DOMESTIC AND URBAN LIFE IN THE SERRALVES COLLECTION

This October, as a result of the partnership established between the Serralves Foundation and the Municipality of Vila Nova de Famalicão, the Casa do Território, within the framework of its programming, will host the exhibition, "My Home is Your Home, Images of Domestic and Urban Life in the Serralves Collection”.
Many artists have used the home as a subject and pretext for their work. The artists and works included in this exhibition focus on domestic and daily life, proposing different interpretations of the meaning of the home. Regardless of the approach adopted, the home always seems to involve a subtle game between the private and public spheres.

In the run-up to the exhibition, the sculpture Untitled, 1990, by José Pedro Croft, will be on display from June 4 onwards, in the garden of the Casa do Território.

In this work, Croft uses a traditional technique of sculpture - modelling in plaster, followed by casting in bronze - to produce a sculpture that refers to the domestic space and day-to-day experiences. In this case, a segment of a cone evokes a bowl. The forms of the sculpture, as well as white paint covering the bronze, establish a bridge between the simplicity of domestic objects and the grandiloquence of geometric solids, making it impossible to use the objects because of their weight.

The exhibition will present works by: Filipa César, Pedro Cabrita Reis, Gil Heitor Cortesão, José Pedro Croft, Ângela Ferreira, Fernanda Fragateiro, Gordon Matta-Clark, Juan Muñoz, Bruce Nauman, Luís Palma, Martha Rosler, Ana Vieira.
