Between 1968 and 1973, Alberto Carneiro (Coronado, 1938) performed three installations that were determinant for his course and for any subsequent Portuguese art: O Canavial: Memória Metamorfose, from 1968, Uma floresta para os teus sonhos, from 1970, Um campo depois da colheita para deleite estético do nosso corpo, from 1973-1976. The three works comprise telluric situations in which the presence of the field, recreated in the exhibition space by the strict and careful organization of elements in the cycle of nature, produce to the spectator travel machines in time and space. The last of these parts, much more difficult to produce because entirely dependent on the cycle of Nature, is not seen in Porto since its presentation, in 1976, in Museum Soares dos Reis, in the exhibition that Alberto Caneiro made there. In Lisbon this work was installed in the retrospective that Carneiro made at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in 1991. For this presentation at Porto was necessary to reserve a field that was seeded with rye, possible by the collaboration of the Municipality of Montalegre and the Ecomuseum of Barroso. This is a rare opportunity to enjoy the surroundings and the poetics of the work of Alberto Carneiro, particularly under circumstances in which it is possible to see, on simultaneous display, at Culturgest in Lisbon, other installations of the artist's reference. On the occasion of the exhibition, will be release a catalogue with documentation.
