Architect Souto de Moura at Galeria Millennium...

The Millennium Gallery once again highlights the great values of national architecture, now with Eduardo Souto de Moura, after distinguishing Álvaro Siza a year ago.

On the occasion of the launch of the Architectural Guide to Eduardo Souto de Moura Built Projects in Portugal, on February 22nd, the artist and photographer Nuno Cera was invited on a “journey” through Portugal, portraying the projects that are featured in the book in an arrangement that evokes the architect’s design and language in fragments. It is from this “journey” that the exhibition Mineral Poetry, at the Millennium Gallery in Lisbon originates.

The layout of the exhibition, which was decided by the artist, consists of 18 photographs and 2 videos. Those are chosen fragments of the work by architect Eduardo Souto de Moura to whoever intentionally “looks”.

The analysis that Nuno Cera’s gaze provokes leads the viewer to deepen the feeling of reality and beauty while juxtaposing an allegory of the architecture work. Mineral Poetry goes beyond the limits of a photography exhibition. It reveals what Nuno Cera's gaze creates: a free essay on the greatness of Eduardo Souto de Moura’s architecture, understanding its power through the poetic delicacy that sets him apart as an artist.
