Doubts and Mountains – Carla Souto
The exhibition “Doubts and Mountains” traversed by a brush or pen and unpainted canvases through the incomprehensible scale of a mountain. How to become a mountain? How to possess (a) mountain? The unresolved poems by Carla Souto, seeded throughout the relief of the exhibition space, question the limits of materiality in bread sculptures, with questions about the peaks, from drawing, installation, video.
What’s under a mountain? Tangent Projects becomes a landscape, where the perceptions about mountains and limits, about shape and drawing, can be blurred with questions; a place where the alien, the fixed, the unknown, the immense is made malleable; a landscape for mountains of doubts.
By repeating the word mountain, does it lose its meaning?
