Patrícia Garrido. More or Less Recent Pieces


Commissioner – Filipa Oliveira

Collaboration – EDP Foundation

Patrícia Garrido brought together furniture from different sources, such as the António Arroio Secondary School, the houses of unknown people and her parents’ apartment where she herself grew up. He sawed all the furniture into pieces of more or less identical size, glued them with Pattex glue and formed compact cubes weighing hundreds of kilos, one for each source. The artist transformed each set with the identity of whoever used it and sought to reflect the memories that each piece would have.
