Mapa Orográfico do Território Português, à Escala 1:625000, Sujeito às Condições Luminosas do dia 25 de Abril de 1974, às 08h00, 1999-2009

Associating itself with the celebrations of the fifty years since The Carnation Revolution, during the month of April, Culturgest is presenting the work Orographic Map of the Portuguese Territory, Scaled 1:625000, Subject to the Light Conditions of April 25, 1974, at 08:00, 1999-2009. By the author Fernando Brito, and part of the Caixa Geral de Depósitos Collection, this piece suspends a historical moment at the height of its promise. At 08:00 on April 25, 1974, Portugal was the perfect unknown, the country-poem ready to be written. From this mythical moment, the artist leaves us with a drawing: the cutout of the unrepeatable light of that morning sweeping across the drowsy accidents of the national territory.
