TEIA DE PALMA by Saphira Nancy | Palm oil and artistic creation

TEIA DE PALMA, by Saphira Nancy
from 8th to 17th of December 2021
Rua de Ponta Delgada, 26 A, Lisbon

The starting point of this work is the ancestral charge that palm oil has in African culture. “Palm Web” is an exploration of its use as a way of nourishing the memory of one’s origins through an intimate connection with this food, and a way of questioning corporality and our individual role in its preservation.

FAULT / FALHA is a creative project that explores the fragmentation and discontinuity of space, discourse, culture, and community – everywhere in the world.
We invited five distinguished artists to interpret and explore this theme.
Their work will be exhibited at our gallery in Lisbon between November 2021 and February 2022.
