On July 24, at 6h30 p.m., Pedro Henriques will meet Cristina Sanchez-Kozyreva and Alexandre Estrela for a conversation about his work on the exhibition Safari. The exhibition that the artist presents at Zé dos Bois is composed of works done in the last two years, divided between drawings and objects that challenge the spectator’s perceptual capacity, testing the image’s survival at the time of its growing exhaustion.
