2018 / self-initiated / collaboration / capuchas / exhibition / SUSTAINABILITY
Archipélago was an event promoted by À Capucha! that proposed a dialogue between the Ilha (Island) edition capuchas and other pieces, projects and brands that seek out, in their essence or in their processes, sustainable forms of relationship with society and contemporary culture.
In the Temporada space, besides the Ilha capucha, we presented four projects by four artists and designers.
A "Upcycling Island Remaking the way we make" capucha developed in collaboration with the designer Elleonor and made with our production waste mixed with micro-plastics collected at the beach. The graphic language of lines, patches and patterns by Elleonor transformed the Ilha capucha into a unique piece that in itself sends out warning signs.

plastic and fabric on burel, single copy.
A series of photographs taken by the photographer Alexandre Delmar explores the tension between the body, materials and context in images that make us think about our relationship with the sea, now the place where we receive echoes of the end of life as we know it.

50x60cm, LAMBDA print applied on aluminium, single copy
A limited edition of four screen prints by printer Margarida Castel-Branco, made from waste fibres — skeins of wool and plastic net make up patches and abstract textures whose plastic strength competes with the destination they already had.
RICARDO NICOLAU DE ALMEIDA
The "Virtual" sculpture by artist Ricardo Nicolau de Almeida who suggests a reconfiguration of the real through an installation using plastic collected from the beach which all at once looks to us like a tree, and then a skeleton, challenging us to think about the nebulous borders between natural/artificial, life/death, and real/virtual.
