Hi TE friends

This is my second picture of the Lisbon TE meeting (27th of February). This one was taken inside the CCB, you can see a chandelier

A chandelier made of 14 thousand tampon, called 'The Bride' is the best-known work of Joana Vasconcelos. "It symbolizes the purity of the woman's virginity until marriage," explained the artist, this Saturday at the Berardo Museum, which is reflected a retrospective of his work

In this meeting participated Miguel (nszeretlek) and his wife Annette, Goncalo (Bluejeans), Filipe (Sacavem), Paulo (Juntas), me and Cidalia Bolacha.

Belém Cultural Centre is situated in one of the most noble areas in cosmopolitan Lisboa, the Belém quarter, in front of the majestic Jerónimos Monastery, the Belém Cultural Centre is an architectonic equipment dedicated to the promotion of arts, functioning as well as a meetings and conferences centre.

The construction was initiated in 1988 and finished in 1993, aiming to fulfil the need of a space to receive the Presidency of the European Union and that, at the same time, would gather the crescent range of cultural activities of the Capital and of the Country.

The project was attributed to the Architects Vittorio Gregotti (Italy) and Manuel Salgado (Portugal), congregating a Meetings and Conference Centre, a Performing Arts Centre, an Exhibition Centre, an Hotel Zone and Complementary Equipment. It occupies nowadays a construction area of 97 thousand square meters, distributed in six hectares separated by two inner streets and united by a pedestrian sideway that creates an unity with the lovely Império Square.

Its location was quite polemic, right in front of one of the most prominent monuments in Lisboa, yet it aims to proudly mark the leaving point of the important Portuguese Maritime Discoveries back in the 15th century, that gave “new worlds to the world”, opening the doors to new cultures and lifestyles.

The Belém Cultural Centre is endowed with technical departments, auditoriums, shops, restaurants, exhibition galleries, gardens, pedagogic activities, museums, among many other amenities serving the arts, in one of the most beautiful and historic places in Lisboa, side by side with the legendary Tejo river.

Olá amigo !

It is very nice to check the pictures because it is the true way to disclose what was in the photographer´s mind and what kind of perceptions , in this case , you have ...The result is very interesting plunging into the abstract artistic world ...

Still seeing what picture to post ( PS is installed in my office and lately there´s a lot of work ! So i expect next Monday i could see and retouch a bit some of them ...but i have the intuition there´s not anything special )

Um abraço

Olá Aires. Excelente o pormenor desse lustre. A iluminação está muito boa para um lustre feito de tampões :) (sabias?).

"Um lustre feito de 14 mil tampões, chamado «A noiva», é a obra mais conhecida de Joana Vasconcelos. «Simboliza a pureza da mulher, a virgindade até ao casamento», explicou a artista plástica, este sábado no Museu Berardo, onde está patente uma retrospectiva da sua obra."

Um abraço.

Oi amigo ,
Muito boa esta tua foto gostei muito do efeito visual do candeeiro , muito interessante esta linhas escuras com a faixa clara no meio , tiveste bom olho :), parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

Bom fim de semana

Bonsoir, cher Aires,
Une image très graphique qui laisse vagabonder notre imagination.
On se laisse à contempler un bon moment, et l'on découvre un monde étonnant.
En tout cas, cette réunion entre amis de TE, est une excellente initiative.

Hello Aires,
A mysterious photo, well observed and presented in an eye catching composition. Good wor.

Interessante o lustre cercado por essa estrutura também redonda, criando um bonito padrão. Parabéns pela arte!

Good morning Aires.
I tried to find out without having to look at the description, what shown in this picture. Unfortunately, I failed. The design of this chandelier is an abstract of which is not easy to decipher. Description under the photo explains everything. Interestingly it is shown. Asymmetry is a good frame.
Have a good Sunday,

curiosa esta foto, tem um grafismo forte e é bem abstrata, parece arte concretista, não parece elemento de arquitetura. boa a sua foto
