Inauguration of the exhibition “JUNGE!!! Until my return” by Filipe Abranches

Ilustraboom WC/BD

The Parish of Santo António – Lisbon, known for its cultural dynamism with diverse and innovative initiatives, presents the exhibition “JUNGE!!! Until my return”, by the artist Filipe Abranches.

The inauguration of the exhibition will be on the 3rd of August, at 6 pm, in the former WC at Jardim Camilo Castelo Branco.

“JUNGLE!!! Until my return” is an exhibition that began with a “disappeared vignette” of an “image from the Buck Danny series” that the artist “read as a kid in Mundo de Aventuras”. With the hope of “recovering that image” and on a trip to Brussels, Filipe Abranches bought the “compilation of the original collection in color” but when he finally recovered these versions, he did not find the image he wanted, which “was about an intense moment of the story in which the heroes were saved by a hook from an airplane.”

It was “in a theoretical discussion” that Filipe and a “Belgian researcher” spoke about how much “comic book images (…) populate our memory”. In this way, “this exhibition is a selection of the 61 original boards designed before the time of the pandemic and which gave rise to the graphic novel ‘JUNGLE!!!’, also edited in English, ‘JUNGLE!!!’, by the publisher UMBRA”.

The event is part of the Ilustraboom WC/BD cycle, which aims to present works by emerging and established artists, in an alternative space: the former WC in Jardim Camilo Castelo Branco, on Avenida Duque de Loulé, in Lisbon.

The exhibition will be open until the 26th of August, from Tuesday to Saturday, from 1 pm to 7 pm.
