Performance at Soares dos Reis National Museum, 2014 Curated by Maria de Fátima Lambert
curatorial project with Liz Collini in partnership with Royal College of Arts and CPS portugal
Ana Fonseca talks about polemic issues in a daring yet subtle manner.
Her imaginations, supported by long lengths of research are the bases for works with multiple historical and cultural references, taking the audience on a journey to her universe through her involving installations and unusual performances. The highlights are the Almack’s#1 where the artist travelled on a futuristic sedan chair, carried by four men from the Museu Nacional dos Coches to Ermida de Belém, the audience followed her in a parade on the streets of Lisbon. For European Exotic#1 Palácio Nacional da Ajuda, the spaces will be animated and rearranged in order to tell real and fictional stories and histories, where the protagonists are the collection itself.
