ANA DIAS BATISTA

The pair, 2018

Hand-made replicas of two pairs of shoes portrayed in two paintings by the artist Almeida Júnior, part of Pinacoteca's permanent collection: "Saudade" (1898) and "Cena da Família de Adolfo Augusto Pinto" (1891).

The paintings are displayed in a room dedicated to genre paintings. Side by side, they are separated by a doorway that, at the exhibition "Common ground", leads to the audio installation "Footer". The shoes are set at the doorway's threshold.

Shoemakers: Nério Georg, Hugo Chescon, Décio Gomes dos Santos
