Jardines del Palacio de Cristal

The piece installed in the Glass Palace Gardens is an structure based in the Ferreirinha Pavillion. The size and the entrance door are similar to it, but the walls were converted in a bench.
The idea was that this framework (refering to the context, the materiality and the stories) can serve a place for encounter, to think about this public space nowadays.
Not only thinking about the history, but as a platform to see the place here and now.
The piece makes also reference to a wine press, the production of wine, as its form, with people sitting on it, looks like it. In doing so, I allude to the two Alvão´s photographic series: the Colonial Exhibition and the research of the Port Wine Land.
