Manuela Castro Martins

Each exhibition is a tale.

To tell a tale, using three words from the title.

To freedom the jar from the flower-keeper function and to allow displaying, improbable and useless, its petals.

To seek in the rosettes the tiny portal to absolute infinity.

To invente an explanation for the heart, a suspended and untouchable object.
