Vasco Costa and Wolfgang Obermair are presenting the results of their three weeks stay at the AIR programm of the art association AISCA in Viana do Castelo.
Their activities create a draft for the discussion on visual culture and document their ambivalent relationship to the outer worlds visibility through sensitized material and techniques, that appear to be archaic.
The cooperation of the artists is inspired by specific local conditions, such as the history and architecture of the former shipyard building, the hub of the tides, the fishing industry and the local rites of the people of Viana do Castelo.
