“One day I realized it no longer made sense to make things hang on walls...my canvas is too big to be exposed in a museum room, and sometimes so small that nobody can see it" Lourdes Castro became known as the artist "who took care of shadows" Throughout her international career as an artist Lourdes developed the concept of shadow, giving it different forms and finally reducing it to the minimum and dematerializing it. Today, when 80 years old she lives alone in an isolated house in Madeira island. Her art has become so minimalistic that it is hard to separate it from the gestures of her daily life. Lourdes worships every moment of her life, the trick is to keep breathing, she says.

“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
