Since the 1990s, the work of the artist Gabriela Albergaria (Vale de Cambra, 1965) has focused on understanding the acculturation of the landscape and nature through the migratory processes and globalisation that began in the fifteenth century. In the multiple typologies that she uses (sculpture, installation, works conceived for the public space, drawing and photography), the recording of the transformations of the landscape through human activity, the modification of ecosystems through the importation of plant species and the history of the domestication of nature, which lay behind the botanical gardens constructed in the eighteenth century, she has been establishing a coherent and systematic body of work.

This exhibition maps the different moments of her journey, which, besides existing works, includes the conception of new projects, offering us an overview of her activity in the last 15 years. The starting point is the installation that the artist exhibited at the CCB, in 2005 (an enormous tree displaying a violent grafting process), passing through the works that she has produced in Germany, Chile, Brazil and the United Kingdom, where she now resides.
