Multidisciplinary show “Palaphita” at José Afonso Park, Baixa da Banheira

José Afonso Park, in Baixa da Banheira, receives, on July 23, at 6:30 pm, the multidisciplinary show “Palaphita”, by PIA – Projetos de Intervenção Artística.

On the banks of the river, planted, ephemeral stilt buildings stand on the banks illustrating houses suspended from rolled-up balconies, which tell the stories of a small migratory community, united in the incessant search for the external sign that humanity has always craved.

In an imaginary universe inspired by vernacular buildings, the Palafita is the architectural element that sets the tone for the creation of this work, which conceives the material for the construction of shelters suspended between stilts and temporary bandages, which illustrate, through stories, objects, and shapes, bridges of identity and margins, valuing the nomadic, intuitive and surviving spirit.
