And again you’re very welcome to join us!

This exhibition is the result of a rich and inspiring exchange with fellow artist and poet Alice Hsieh.

We have met during a book club in early 2015 and since then we have been exchanging ideas about poetry and art, and giving each other feedback.

During this period, Alice wrote a series of poems, published in a bilingual (English-Portuguese) format, which have been developed into video and Spoken Word performances, while I have been working on a series of texts and interactive art installations, some of them already known to some of you.

We look forward to having you with us to celebrate our passion for books, words and poetry!
