Notarium – Cabinet of Small Differences
An exhibition by Sérgio Bonilha and Luciana Ohira
Estúdio Performas, Aveiro (PT)
15 to 18 September 2010
The Brazilian visual and media artists Luciana Ohira and Sérgio Bonilha were invited last year to develop an artist residency in the village of Nodar. At it, they created a series of pieces that responded to the geographical and human environment of the area. Starting from sketches, ideas and some pieces created in the said residency, the artists have expanded, reformulated and speculated them to come up a new set of creations, which will be exhibited in Portugal for the first time.
