It is through the confrontation between the solemn remembrance, led by D. Francisco de Moura, and the creation of Gaëtans’s faces , that the individual is assumed and the last will emerges : to see ourselves by viewing and reviewing the portrait.
Beyond the possible identity of a face or faces, what these works, separated by centuries, really reveal (by now as a subject of memory) are all forms of communication, transformed into a web of repetitions, similarities and differences.
This cycle of exhibitions aims an interaction, share and reinforcement of empathy among museums and their collections.
We propose to create a fresh look at objects that tell us stories, reinforcing the intersection of emotions for the better enjoyment of the public. They aim to disseminate the heritage and the presence of the element of surprise when they come together in innovative contexts, works outside their original context.
