“Memory Exercises” | Luís Brum

4 set – 08 nov 2020

1st Floor – Shop


Maximum capacity of 8 visitors, simultaneously.


On the 4th of September, Luís Brum, an artist from Terceira, is opening his exhibition “Memory Exercises”, that results from the idea that

“Among these memory processes there is a pseudo-constant: the book. Designed to keep memory itself as part of it. The book as an art object and as a container of art objects. In this razor’s edge, it is an apparently impartial object, a donor of apparent knowledge. But what is a book without content. How does this container express itself empty, truly impartial to history. To stop looking at an object as a constant and it becomes another cultural expression subject to the gaze of time.”


Luís Pinheiro Brum was born in 1985 in Biscoitos and graduated in Landscape Architecture in Lisbon. He worked in Barcelona in the OPR architecture studio until 2010, returning to Portugal, where he continues his research work and urban intervention that put him in contact with eco-sociology themes. He works in the area of urban art at first between architecture and art, with projects such as “Chão de Gente” (2011). In that same year, he presents works in the field of graphic arts, illustrating a set of stories in an exhibition at the Cultural and Congress Center of Angra do Heroísmo. In the year 2013, he participates in the Walk&Talk festival, a festival that he has been part of as a team member since 2016. In this exhibition, he presents his first works in the field of sculpture.
