Taking as its starting point a lightning trip in a time of pandemic, the DUCK-FISH exhibition starts from evidence collected in furtive incursions from the peaks on the shores of the island. Transitions and oppositions of the most varied nature, such as the groupers that are born female and transition to males; banana trees in the snow; sexual trees and millenary organs; pierced mountains; tunnels in reverse; cows fallen into the sea; architectural edges penetrating the ocean, and other aquatic and insular readings that rose to the surface of memory, are some of the retinal images that serve as jargon for the

exhibition. "What fish could that be? In fact, just by swimming under water he looked like a fish. If he walked on top of the water, in the fire of it, it would be because of the kind of feathers (they were feathers, no doubt) that covered him, because of the fins that covered him. they looked like two feet, because of the fin stubs that looked like wings, because of the staggering and unsteady way of moving, a duck. It was, therefore, a duckfish." 
in Novas Andanças do Demónio, Jorge de Sena

This exhibition combines works by Laetitia Morais and Mattia Denisse, who invited him to collaborate with his drawing work that were created uniquely for this exhibition (the photos presented here are exclusively from Laetitia’s works)
