LIMBO
27 June to 18 July 2008

Organization and production of the Collective Exhibition of Students of Faculty of Fine Arts of University of Porto, design and communication. We are always between two states. But, more important than understanding them separately is understanding the barrier that separates them. It is this threshold, which transforms two distinct points into one, that we must try to understand. We will not confine ourselves to states of mind but to states of action, where the "doing" of each one is exposed.
