From the 19th of November until the 8th of January 2021

Opening: 19 November, from 15h30 to 19h00

The Casa A. Molder Gallery opens its doors with Luto, an exhibition by Gustavo Sumpta (1970).

Luto is also the title of the ephemeral sculpture that was specially created for the premises of the Casa A. Molder Gallery. The piece envelops and delimits the gallery’s space, inviting the viewer to attentively interact with it. In the words of the artist, who frequently uses in his sculptures tapes from VHS cassettes, an obsolete magnetic recording material: “This sculpture is presented like it was a residue from a performance art piece. It is a celebration of continuous, repeated movement. Here, Mourning [Luto] is the metamorphosis of lamenting”.
