More Than A Square Metre: Works From The Serralves Collection

Auditorium
23 DEC 2021 - 13 MAY 2022
Pad2 800x450 cover

EXHIBITION GUIDE


More than a square metre features a selection of photographs and videos from the Serralves Collection that reveal different domestic and public spaces: a cinema, a library, a dressing room in a theatre, a stage and an office, as well as the recent archaeological remains of a decommissioned factory and an abandoned hotel.


Buildings and streets are more than walls, roofs, stone and concrete; they are more than their constituent materials and their geometry. These spaces were designed for a variety of purposes and those who inhabit them, work in them or simply pass them by experience them differently. These lives, traces and memories add stories to every space and to its surrounding landscape. The works presented reflect different approaches not only to the construction, perception and experience of space, but also to the way people shape the places they live in.
