Tempo perdido no porto #2

Tempo perdido no porto #2
Pedro Henriques

Friday, Feb 13, 10.00 pm

In 1933  the prominent union leader M. A. Santos, takes refuge in a merchant sailor's union, currently Oporto, to escape the fascist police. In return for the generosity of his companions, who sheltered him for an extended time, Santos covered the hall with murals depicting mythological figures, boats anchored in the harbour and shipwrecks in the Tagus delta.
After a one year residency at Oporto, it is now time for Pedro Henriques to generously share with us the work he conceived here. On friday February 13, Henriques will present a sculpture exhibition that mirrors the time lost in this space.
