LISBOA - Museu Nacional do Azulejo - Convento Madre de Deus

Museu Nacional do Azulejo - My dream museum, where all the history of tile and the tradition of azulejo is presented in a baroque convent... 
500 ans d'art de l'azulejo, présentés de façon chronologique et didactique sur deux étages du couvent Madre de Deus. Modèles géométriques hispano-mauresques (XVe-XVIe s.), carreaux d'Anvers (XVIe s.), azulejos baroques et contemporains, ect..
Querubim Lapa - In the entrance, the master of the glazes..
Cristina Bolborea - Temporary contemporary exhibition. 
Cristina Bolborea's works recover, exploring the plastic of clayton compose carpets and fabrics, richly interlaced. The manner in which these objects are arranged and juxtaposed within the space of this exhibition evokes the image of Islamic fairs, those places representing the game of memories connected to childhood and youth, the miraculous space where the strewn soft pillows invite us to stop, sit down and listen. 
The journey through memory expands upon the reasons designated and incised by an unknown traveler and on his impressions of these places, sumptuous images from those far off fairs and their products. The drawings travel through time and impress us, immortalized in the immutability of matter and the silence of images, and the residual chromatics becomes the testimony of vivid and rich colors that once covered them. Among nowadays immutable fragility of these memories, architectural testimonials arise from the place to place, ruins of fragility of lost spaces. The bright floors reflects on the earth the sky brilliancy, the remains of a wall and even a column, the axial element of space and the only survivor of a temple forgotten today.
The magic lived formally in this space. Present in elaborated and strange rings, fascinating pieces where found shelter the capricious djinn.
Conservation & restoration - Around the cloister of the museum there is now showing the restauration tiles team working.. A nice way to discover the beauty and the patience of this technique. 
Conservation and Restoration department develops through its practice and theoretic reflexion, methods and principles conducting to good Conservation and Restoration practices of the patrimony on Azulejo (Tile), as an museologic object or as a patrimony integrated in architecture, taking care yet of problems related to Ceramics.

Sylvan Bongard - Submerged Art - Sylvan Bongard reflects about the sea. About the world that is hidden under this immense area and where the debris of the contemporary world are already part of an ecosystem that until very recently, as far as the history of the Earth is concerned, was still untouched by man. With an ironic humor, the way this ceramist sculptor portrays the inhabitants of the liquid depths reflects human characteristics.
