Camilo Rebelo presented OVO, a wooden structure that was installed in the atrium of Oporto’s City Hall.
CAMILO REBELO – ARCHITECT
OVO’s project, was a challenge of a deeply restless client, which proposed the construction of a space to install one sculpture from Rui Chafes – Semente. This room is in the basement of his home in Fideris, located in the Swiss Alps.
This ‘Trojan Egg’ is the first stage of the project OVO. The purpose of this wooden Egg is to create a void, to unveil a new dimension and through it potentiate mystery. Mystery is a condition that is very close to disappear from our civilization. This value is for us one of the main reasons of life, and therefore the Egg is the dimension we choose to express it.
RUI CHAFES – SCULPTOR
The egg is a dip in the perfection of emptiness. The introduced silence reminds us of the extreme closeness between life and death.
