Exhibition of the film: "Aires Mateus: Matéria em Avesso"
Museu de Leiria
18 September 2019, 7:30pm
The work of the architects Aires Mateus clearly shows contemporaneity - in its complexity and contradiction -, a difficult condition to express in the realm of architecture.
The extent of the work that they've been developing for many years confirms this. Their proposals develop a language with a strong universal impact.
From this universality, emerges an adaptation to the territory rooted in a clear Portuguese tradition. One finds in the interpretation of the work of Aires Mateus architects an appetite - almost a desire - for a cinematographic appropriation: by the invention of a place; By the confrontation between body and matter; For the clarity of games of shadow; For the search of a silence of its own.The matter is found in reverse.
The director, Henrique Pina will be present in this exhibition.
The screening will take place at Museu de Leiria.
