FAULT/FALHA | Fragmentation and discontinuity

FAULT/FALHA is a creative project that explores the fragmentation and discontinuity of space, discourse, culture, and community — everywhere in the world.

In geology, a fault is “a planar fracture or discontinuity in a volume of rock across which there has been significant displacement as a result of rock-mass movements”. Friction and rigidity are key features of a fractured landscape, literally and metaphorically.

We invited five distinguished artists to interpret and explore this theme, using the medium of text, photography, illustration or drawing.
Their work was exhibited at our gallery in Lisbon between November 2021 and April 2022.
