triptychs, by Luísa Alpalhão


Opening June 10th, 4pm / until August 5th

[ triptychs ] is a series of photographic narratives of urban and rural transformation in three distinct contexts – Portugal, Okinawa (Japan) and London. Inspired by the Okinawan folk tale ‘The Golden Bird’, it depicts stories of resilience, reinvention, and demolition – three human acts that portray different approaches to spatial and social transformation. [ triptychs ] illustrates atypical beauties and functional aesthetics giving voice to the mundane, capturing what ones’ eyes tend to dismiss. It presents an alternative story of the every day, distant from what is conventionally considered to be alluring, questioning the notion of territory and spatial transformation.
