Through the Looking Glass

“Through the Looking Glass” is the name Ricardo Leiria gave to a set of sculptures that emerge and submerge between two spaces, this side of a mirror and the other side, of what we don’t know, of the world, of ourselves. With these sculptures, we can dive into a monochromatic imaginary world of three-dimensional stains and walking metamorphoses that take on shapes and forms representative of two parallel universes. Some, completely free, wander immobile and timeless through our world. Others, seek liberation from time and space and allow themselves to be swallowed and slide through the sphere of the immaterial. Mirrors without reflection are the vehicle of union and communication between the world of feet on the ground and the other, the unlimited. (Ana Mafalda Nunes)
