nn.Pearl, roibe - roiDe (2015-2016)
The entrance of the gallery is a classic example of a white cube and tries to exemplify the contrasts between production and presentation of the pearls. White flight cases (Lima Drib) refer to VA's history backstage of a performance space. Imprints of Brussels Lacework (Lima Drib) are resulting from experiments with water printing (Água com Gás) and can be considered a typical example of the Mango Discipline. The lacework mimics architectural ground plans of gothic cathedrals and presents the pearls as in a constellation.
Absence of paint (Ana Omandichana) accentuates the emptiness and is playing with the notion of inaccessibility of a gallery in a tourist town.
