ARCA (art instalation)

News - 19 September 2021

Immersive installation that crosses territories and generations, through a sound and visual archive that proposes the construction of a new wardrobe. Suspended sheets overlap layers of a female legacy and print portraits of Bravas, women who inspire us and represent our ancestors. Inside this ARCA, many voices whisper silenced stories, finding a time and space of resistance between songs of struggle and lullabies. Collective creation framed within the project ENXOVAL Time and Space of Resistance, which since 2019 explores the themes of gender equality through artistic practices, crossing community groups from Porto and Amarante.
