Press Release

“Emospheric Landscapes” revolutionizes Edge Arts


Inês Dantas’s exhibition  from The Lisbon Architecture Triennale  is currently shown at Espaço Amoreiras


 “Emospheric Landscapes” is the name of the Edge Arts’ gallery show and it is a neologism taken from the show Emotions and Spaces. Inês Dantas whose work was incorporated  in the Associated Projects programme “Close, Closer”, shown at The Lisbon Architecture Triennale  is now  presented at Edge Gallery from 28th November to 31st December.


The architect will bring the visitor to the Parkland Walk, in London, which is a inactive railway line full of mysteriously beautiful trees and bushes. The exhibition works as a generator of landscapes, opening up a dialogue between nature  and culture present in the city. Furthermore,  Inês Dantas explores the relationship between constructed and natural elements through a new technology to scan tridimensional land.


 “’Emospheric Landscapes’,  is a concept used to name the presence of an individual, who emotionally interprets  the special spheres he crosses. The meticulous process of the image composition rebuilds the place through subjectively chosen perspectives, that demonstrate the integration of the “natural” and the “urban”.


In order to promote not only national and emergent artists, but also multidisciplinary perspectives, Edge Arts – Cultural project created by The Edge Group shows Inês Dantas at Espaço Amoreiras.


The architect co-founded with Florian Wurfbaum, the architecture practice WUDA*, in Munich and London and already achieved many international prizes (Tejo and  Austrian Pavilion at Expo 2010 in Shanghai). Inês Dantas exhibits for the first time in Portugal.
