Espíritos da Natureza e Cosmos
The exhibition of Sezo represents the Spirits of Nature & Cosmos. Spirits everywhere. Nature everywhere. Cosmos everywhere- and nowhere. Connected. There is no separation. Series of artworks shows different varieties of beings, soul portraits, human being organs, nature touches, cosmos feelings… The connection between art, nature, and the cosmos by using natural materials that artists collected from nature and the sensation of the cosmos in colors and shapes.
Umbral das Artes – Lisbon Edition
Sold or Burned?! Umbral das Artes was born in Brazil in 2016, became popular among several local collectives, helped more than 1500 artists in social neighbourhoods and jumped in the meantime borders to Uruguay, Peru and France. Artworks of different artists go to bidding – If a work is not sold, it is burned in a ritual. Shell Osmo is project creator, visual artist and also the Master of Ceremonies of this special project presented for the first time in Portugal. The auction is happening on the 27th of August in Nada Temple. Selected artworks of the auction are exhibited from the 18th until the 22th in Prisma.
