Sinopsis

Published on the occasion of Ana Santos’s exhibition in Ashpit 8 at MAAT – Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology, this catalogue includes photographs of the six sculptures installed in the exhibition space. In her text, Ana Anacleto, the exhibition curator, writes about Anátema: “Ana Santos’s work invites us to walk into the room and make ourselves available to see. It asks us for time, for lingering, for an ability to observe. It asks us to surrender ourselves to the poetics of detail. By their mere presence, and in their simplest way of “being” — even if they are set apart from any ritualistic process —, her works offer themselves up to the viewer as ways to access a profoundly subjective universe in which, we are certain, their inherent power can enhance an experience on a transcendental level.”
