Galeria Duarte Sequeira is pleased to inaugurate its programme of exhibitions on Saturday, March 16th, 2019 with a group exhibition exploring the constantly-redefined term ‘human‘.

Using the myth of Eos and Tithonus as a starting point, and with a strong focus on humanity’s quest to live -possibly forever-, the exhibition delves into the collaboration between the human and non-human, the boundaries of natural and artificial, organic and synthetic, the real and fictional, and the aesthetic and the practical.

The exhibition encourages to consider the way each body experiences life individually, and collectively contributes to the expansion of the term ‘human’. With a common desire to make sense of the world and its limitations, the artists discuss the evolutionary process and raise questions around technological advances under capitalism, and how these have, in turn, affected humanity’s relationship with time and nature.
