Closet Stuff / Alfredo Martins / 2008
Closet Stuff (Coisas de Armário) is the second project of the ‘Object’s Cycle’, which takes the closet as departure point for the production process.
The objects that cross our existence are surrounded by connotations which add them a dimension of sensitivity. In a closet, we save all the paraphernalia of things that, culturally, we got used to amass, giving them an order and a specific place within the domestic space. It fulfils purposes of stowage , hygiene and cataloguing. But, also for being a space where we pile up things, the closet transforms into a personal memory space, of affective identification. A space of narratives.
