Opening: November 16th, 5 pm. Artist talk at 6 pm.

Exhibition: Galleries 1, 2 and 3, until January 5th 2014. Every day from 2.30 pm to 7.00 pm.
Fernando José Pereira presents, for the first time in Portugal, his arctic works: video, photography and installations, created, in different periods, in a triangle between Iceland, the Nordic peninsula and Svalbard. The selected works propose a political view on a fragile natural environment (an experimental lab of abrupt changes) and its slow turn in culture. This works also raises the question of temporality in these far places: spaces where the perception of time is based on a scale and rhythm different from what is commonly defined as contemporary speed.
Fernando José Pereira was born in 1961. Lives and works in Porto.
