Galeria Municipal do PortoGaleria Municipal do Porto


Caroline Mesquita's multifaceted work encompasses installation, moving image and sculpture, highlighting the complex relationship with volumes, materials and spaces, while exploring the unfolding of identity and the limits of bodies.
Following his exhibition in 2019, curated by Sofia Lemos, Galeria Municipal do Porto launches "Ideas", the first monograph that brings together sketches, installation photographs, and an in-depth analysis of his practice. Co-published by Lenz Press and Passerelle Centre d'art Contemporain, the publication crosses the artist's practice from the conception of the idea to its materialization, from the deconstruction of characters to the creation of worlds in potency.
The extensive visual content of this publication is complemented by a critical essay by curator Fernanda Brenner, an essay by curator Loïc Le Gall, and an interview with curator Guilherme Blanc, in an effort to provide an overview of Mesquita's production and her frame of references.
