A visual journey where land meets sea
In The Pink presents Terra & Mar, a group exhibition gathering artworks of four Portuguese photographers: João Mariano, Maria Oliveira, Nuno Cera, and Vasco Célio.
In this exhibition, the artists share a visual journey where land meets sea, inviting the viewers to immerse themselves in the tapestry of our country. Weaving stories of landscapes and people, exploring how the tides and the winds have determined the ways through which people in Portugal have been able to work and live.
Nuno Cera‘s series captures the timeless encounter of the sea and the earth, freezing moments with still waves and caves that hint at both the infinite dimension of the sea and passages to the unknown.
João Mariano‘s series portrays the ancestral ways of human habitation in this country. From the challenging lives of men who harvest gooseneck barnacles on sharp rocky seashores to the intricate process of crafting medronho in mountainous regions.
Maria Oliveira‘s artworks narrate the poetic struggle to tame tides for salt production and reveal the fragility of those living off the land, highlighting beauty in banal moments.
Vasco Célio‘s “Hidden Book of Odds” uncovers the poetry in unusual daily sights, playing with the tension between self and otherness. His works shed light on the spectacular in the ordinary, urging viewers to reexamine their surroundings for untold stories.
Terra & Mar is a testament to In The Pink’s commitment of showcasing and promoting the talent within the Portuguese artistic community.
Exhibition Terra & Mar, In The Pink, Gallery for Fine Photo Art, opens on January 25 and is expected to run into March. Tuesday to Friday, from 11am to 7pm, and Saturdays, from 10am to 2pm
