Galeria Filomena Soares is pleased to present Shell Game, a two-person exhibition that brings together for the first time the works of Andreia Santana (Lisbon, 1991) and Anna-Sophie Berger (Vienna, 1989), curated by Luiza Teixeira de Freitas.Departing from an invitation from one artist to the other, the exhibition unfolds a perhaps unpredicted intimacy through the exchange of ideas and dialogue between their practices. Shell Game is set out from already existing artworks that were thoughtfully chosen and placed in the exhibition space, performing a multiplicity of new possibilities from either subtle or tense relationship between both artistic practices.Andreia Santana’s ethereal and unfathomable works from her Soul House’s series, take a completely new dimension, to when shown previously, by the way they are displayed in relation to Anna-Sophie Berger’s uncanny and stealthy portraits. The capture of the invisible, other forms of life, and afterlife in Santana’s, are to some extent, disrupted by Berger’s exploration of portraiture. Due to the juxtaposing of both practices, these photographic portraits, that can be interpreted in a myriad of ways, give space to the inherent expression of body-shaped sculptures as receptacles to receive new live forms in a very organic and unexpected way.
