Patricia Almeida // Portobello

'Portobello' shows bodies in expected and satisfied poses, representations of a low cost popular culture, self-fictions of proletarian glamour. But they also show places immobilized within town-planning and architectural projects whose expression refers more to the kind of organization and arrangement of a Luna park than to the construction of places to inhabit. Places to enjoy rather than places to live in.
