JOÃO PEDRO TRINDADEUnder the rug

Exhibition
5 Mar – 9 Apr 2022

In “Under the rug”, João Pedro Trindade presents the rugs he has collected over the years. In these rugs, we can discover the secrets of the streets, what remains hidden despite being so visible. At a first glance, they look like monochromatic paintings. But a closer look finds relevant differences in these likenesses: the brief stories, the movements, the thoughts and hopes of those who follow the stimuli of modern life. Close and distant, clear and enigmatic, these rugs resemble a puzzle whose image has been lost, they become hieroglyphics, whose key João Pedro Trindade challenges us to find.
