Ângela Ferreira and Jürgen Bock will talk about this particular installation presented in Venice as well as their recent project presented at the Biennale of Lubumbashi. Ângela Ferreira is a Portuguese/South African artist who lives and works in Lisbon.
Her work has been widely exhibited all over the world.

Ao descer a escada
Há um degrau p’ra me sentar.
Não há outro degrau
Onde descansar.
Não estou lá em baixo
Nem lá em cima estou.
Estou é na escada
Onde sempre estou.

Ao subir a escada
Não estou em cima, nem em baixo.
Não estou na creche,
Nem mesmo no sopé, acho.
Ideias estranhas começam a girar
Na minha cabeça
Fora do lugar!
