Liquid Skin is an exhibition that brings together the work of Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Joaquim Sapinho at the Boiler Hall of the Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology, in Lisbon. We were invited to design the exhibition's identity, unveiled in a publication and an entrance wall.

"The starting point for Liquid Skin is the space of the Boiler Hall itself, which offers an exceptional relationship between interior and exterior, using the interchangeability of the museum and its outside space, dominated by the river and the Lisbon light."(MAAT)

"The challenge of bringing together the two artists is achieved under the sign of light, as light makes it possible to both draw spaces and create images, including the ones of things we cannot see. As is true of water or fire, light blurs the contours of the surface of bodies, allowing all their metamorphoses: the eternal cycle of renovation."(MAAT)
