Sculptured in Darkness
The Centro de Arte Moderna invited Hugo Canoilas to create a project specifically for the temporary exhibitions gallery of the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum. This project continues the artist’s research, initiated in 2020, into life on the sea floor and ‘aquatic’ environments, proposing an immersive and sensory installation inhabited by creatures, painting-sculptures to which colour, texture, fluidity and an organic nature give an almost alchemical quality, as though they were in the midst of a metamorphosis right before our eyes.
Curator: Rita Fabiana
