picture of octagon polygon at cava de viriato

Anima Lusitani

2011
Installation
8 Inkjet prints
60 x 40 cm

Based on the immense symbolic weight of ‘Cava de Viriato’ – an enormous regular octagon which was once a place of defense and of surveillance of movements of people along the large quantity of roads across these lands – I recreated a connection between 8 places selected through the extension of the octagon’s sides. After finding these 8 equidistant sides [places] I photographed each one of them facing towards ‘Cava de Viriato’ itself. In the room of the exhibition the 8 photographs are positioned in a way to recreate the octagonal shape of ‘Cava de Viriato’.
