Complexo Colosso - parte II

Nire ama Roman hil da (My mother died in Rome)' will be shown at ‘Complexo Colosso – parte II’. For this second part of the exhibition, the curator Ángel Calvo Ulloa invites new artists to interpret the meanings of the unusual colossal statue found in one of the entrances to the city of Guimarães. Diego Vites, Carme Nogueira, the duo Iratxe Jaio and Klaas van Gorkum and the collective Pizz Buin join the group of artists who challenge the fictional account of Colosso and the very idea of origin.

The exhibition is one of the opening of the new artistic program “On the edges of fiction” in the CIAJG in Guimarães (Portugal) on the 2nd of October at 15:00.
