Exodus walk for schools, with Flor and Daniel Sá

In 2021, a public petition was launched, which has now been deactivated, questioning the Porto City Council's Municipal Master Plan and debating new uses for some land in the Paranhos - Arca d'Água area. One of these urban vacant spaces, on the other hand, was full of non-human life and became known as "A Charca de Salgueiros". Microorganisms and a wide variety of plant and animal species live here, in a limbo that is very interesting to visit and discuss. 
A stadium, a shopping mall or water polo pools were some of the wishes put forward by the centenary Sport Clube Salgueiros. 
 
On this Exodus tour, led by Flor and Daniel Sá, we will discuss the role of art in the discussion of public space and learn about bureaucracy, community, disobedience and intervention, reflecting on process and error when trying to navigate the political temperaments of a city. 
Flor is an artist currently living in Porto. Her academic studies cross art, technology and the culture of the senses, with which she creates immersive and multi-sensory environments in different collectives. She developed a dissertation and performance on smell and its culture, stimulating curiosity at various events. She synthesizes video and light for shows. She expresses herself politically through writing and art, focusing on the themes of ecology and loneliness from a queer perspective.

Daniel Sá began his studies in Architecture in Porto with a decisive detour to Mexico City, which he concluded with a dissertation-essay on the fall of the wall. His practice of artistic exploration carries traces of that place and is based on his return as a member of the Broca 501 studio, where he exhibits installation cycles whose pieces focus on the fracture. He is an integral member of Túnel, a self-managed collective space, where he works in the areas of installation, drawing, writing and tattooing, under the name Aguardente. He scratches compulsively in the expectation that something will crack. aguardente.rip
