In defining the exhibition circuit for the "Escola de Línguas" ("Language School") exhibition at the Sá da Costa Ateliers, a decommissioned bathroom had been excluded due to its use as a storage room.
By choosing this space and requesting its inclusion in the circuit, I tasked myself with selecting and organizing its contents, as well as a thorough cleaning process.
My aim was to create surroundings that would hijack the small space into a sombre, tense and claustrophobic universe, expanding the territory through an exalted atmosphere that would briefly confront us with the discovery of something that is beyond our understanding and hovers amidst the abysses of our unconscious.
