A Galeria da Livraria Portuguesa inaugura, no dia 8 de Dezembro pelas 18:30H, a exposição "Ao meu coração um peso de ferro" por José Drummond. 

Esta série de trabalhos, que usa os textos manuscritos de Camilo Pessanha como ponto de partida, prossegue as linhas orientadoras do artista tanto no abordar dos conteúdos como na exploração dos limites e transfigurações dos materiais usados. Neste grupo, agora apresentado na Galeria da Livraria Portuguesa, continua a haver uma forte relação com as questões centrais do trabalho de Drummond onde, à procura de teor existencialista sobre lugar, identidade e pertença se junta a poesia. 

A exposição estará aberta todos os dias das 11 às 19, até 8 de Janeiro de 2018.

The Portuguese Bookshop Gallery opens "To my heart an iron weight", an exhibition by José Drummond, on December 8th at 6:30 pm.

This series of works, which uses the manuscripts of Camilo Pessanha as a point of departure, follows the artist approaches both in the way he addresses the contents as wells as in the exploration of the borders and related transfigurations of the materials. In this group, now presented at the Portuguese Bookshop Gallery, there’s a strong link with the central issues of Drummond's work that while searches for some kind of existentialistic substance related with place, identity and belonging is frequently combined with a poetic subtone.
