Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Joaquim Sapinho: Liquid Skin

Exhibitions, MAAT, Lisbon, Portugal.


Until April 24, 2017
The starting point for Liquid Skin is in the Boiler Hall space, which offers an exceptional relationship between interior and exterior; the interchangeability of the MAAT museum and its outside space is dominated by the river and the Lisbon light. The challenge of bringing together these two artists is achieved through the means of light, as light is what makes it possible to both draw spaces and create images, including images of things we cannot see. As is true of water or fire, light blurs the contours of the surface of bodies, allowing their metamorphoses. Fireworks, a work by Apichatpong Weerasethakul, is only exhibited from sunset onwards.
