Uma Água Por Favor
Three young people who grew up in the countryside present a set of works that have nothing to do with each other. At the end of the day what they have most in common is the will to show and make known another side of their work. United beyond Puntz Puntz.
Artworks by Cagari Cagaro, Ana de Oliveira e Silva and João Sanchez.

The Movies I Never Made – I have the ability to always remember my dreams. Maybe at some point I fill them in with details made up on the spot, but it all comes from the same place: my subconscious. These 6 works are the result of well-slept nights and a surreal imagination developed in the first weeks of confinement. Dreaming, we are where we want to be, even if the government tells us to stay at home. They arise from the need to illustrate my dreams, in a cross between what I see when I am sleeping and when I am awake.João Sanchez (1997) and Maria Abrantes (1998) live on the same second floor in Lisbon. João works freelance in the areas of cinematography, editing, directing, colour grading and DJ. Maria works in the field of dance as a performer, teacher and creator. In illustration and plastic production as Cagari Cagaró.
Both graduated from António Arroio Artistic School in cinema and plastic production of performance, later in Cinematography by the Superior School of Theatre and Cinema and Dance by the Superior School of Dance, respectively. Maria integrated PACAP #4 Advanced Program of Creation in Performing Arts (2020) by Forum Dança. Together they created BICHO! a collective that works in site-specific (2019) and the experimental film A Invenção do Beijo with premiere supported by Público newspaper and article in Merge magazine in 2020. Uma Água Por Favor is the multidisciplinary project that seeks to cross the areas of both.
Maria Abrantes (@amariaabrantes)
The collected works of Maria Abrantes, Cagari Cagaro, are a selection about the illustration of a tired body of the city life. An erotic body, a shared body a body of appearances. Butterfly (2022) and Movements (and) Fluid (2021); When I was Fired (2022) ; and the collection IT IS SO COMFORTABLE TO BE ALIVE (2020) ; Maria brings to Prisma three different phases of her work where these points relate in illustration format.
