Just after the opening of the Venice biennale we arrived at the fourth edition of ARCOlisboa, and the first with Maribel López as director. Between the Art Libris section, the Meeting of Museums, and the art talks (highlight the one organized by Filipa Oliveira - What I am Working On?) we choose out favorite booths.

A curved arrow stresses its ambiguity through the symbolic difference of masculine and feminine design . The arrow is used here as a metaphor of the god Eros in Greek mythology, whose thin, long and pointed objects in our case do not hit their targets. An arrow that always misses reminds us that the imaginary demands are by definition, unsatisfiable and that the original desire is sustained by its lack.
This exhibition is the continuation of a recent show (Stopping Point, 2018) based on a poem by Antoine Tudal, which describes the difficulty of love through the acoustic and verbal similarity of “love” (l’amour) and “wall” (le mur) in French. The“love-wall” (l’a-mur) in the second part of this visual research is titled as “Curved arrows” .
