under the surveillance of ancient animals

Maria Oliveira

2013 - 2016

Portugal

Is a project based on the place where I was born and where I grew up. It works as annotations of my return to this fulcral period of my life, the memories that I have and the way I feel this place now after many years away. The space is changing, but also my relation with it, and this is that interest me.

This place appears to me now as a place mute, serene, where there’s no time, it is stopped, apart of the rhythm of the world. People and a primordial connection to nature. Empty paths, silent houses and the animals as the last guardians of a home.
