Ponto de Encontro is an installation made of a rotating metal structure similar to playground carousels surrounded by ten chairs of different formats, colours and materials. By using an equipment traditionally found in children’s playgrounds, the artist transforms its scale and context and establishes a parallel with the social diversity and symbolic expectations associated with the design of each chair.

Until November 2018, the work will be on display as part of Soy tu espejo, the artist’s first anthological exhibition held at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in Spain. The show is curated by Petra Joos and Enrique Juncosa.
