“Expanded” presents original creations by Carsten Höller, Julião Sarmento and Marina Abramović, all conceived to be displayed in a public context. The artworks explore our perception of space, scale, time and place, as well as the possibility of expanding our self-imposed or culturally-based borders. Produced in stone, a natural resource that is millions of years old, they share a unifying element that provides them with a deep, timeless and resilient character, contradicting the chaos and superficiality of the contemporary world. Immersed in nature, these pieces provide visitors with moments of experimentation and confrontation, underlining the value of art and culture in public spaces.
