Casino Estoril opens, on the 5th of February, at 5 pm, at the Art Gallery, an individual painting exhibition entitled “Andorinha que vais alta”, by Filipa Oliveira Antunes.
It will be Filipa Oliveira Antunes’ third solo exhibition at the Casino Estoril Art Gallery. This is an original exhibition inspired by the poem by Fernando Pessoa “Andorinha que vais alta”.
“Swallow you go high,
Why don’t you bring me
anything i miss
And what can I not tell you?”
The exhibition “Andorinha que vais alta” brings together 22 works that intend to celebrate the Swallow, as a symbolic value, filling the rare examples of her record in the History of Art in Portugal. In this sense, Filipa Oliveira Antunes was interested in understanding the poetic and philosophical analogy of a bird so small, but with huge wings, that flying long distances, arrives in the spring, choosing our houses to settle, until another departure for other directions.
From this exhibition, we can highlight the work – “A Convocatória”, a painting that pays tribute to unavoidable figures of literature and art in Portugal, under a flock of Swallows in flight.
The Casino Estoril Art Gallery hosts the exhibition “Andorinha que vais alta”, by Filipa Oliveira Antunes. With free entry, not to be missed, until March 7th.
