ROOM G. A timeless art


          The birth of art still remains a very enigmatic field, despite the various explanations that exist. The same is true for the modern and contemporary condition of art, which no definition seems able to embrace.
          This room is a celebration to timeless art, opening up a space for dialogue between the artists-engravers of the past and contemporary artists.
          The art of prehistoric man seems to be very close to us, containing drawings that could figure among the masters of the history of art.  In modern and contemporary art, we often perceive the search for a primordial condition in art and even a reunion with the “primitive”.
           By invitation of the Côa Museum, Alberto Carneiro presents a sculpture that develops like a mandala over a chestnut tree with the different sections displaying the relationships between Art-Life/Nature-Culture.
