Chamamento.Chama.Amamento.Ama. | Ana Rita de Albuquerque
From the notion that calling (chamamento in Portuguese) is a craft of seduction, of captive attention that transforms both who calls and who is called and holds them for moments in a suspended, undefined space, a space of waiting and possibilities.
This textile sculpture embodies that space, it moves in the act of calling, it wants to be hypnotic, languid and crystallize that pending moment that reason has not yet penetrated.
Sculpted from Portuguese wool its sinuosities seem alive and almost ready to provide all the answers, to come to us or to move away from us, but it is in its silence and stillness that it calls.
Materials: Portuguese wool, silk.
