Dialogue of Cultures
NARRATIVES & DISCOURSES : Mail Art – ‘Bridges’ for Ponte de Lima, by Victor Valqui Vidal, @ LETHES ART 2018.
worldwide call for mail art, promoted by Victor Valqui Vidal, at
Global Village Creartists, motivated artists from fourteen countries
(Denmark, Peru, The Netherlands, Brazil, China, Hungary, Portugal,
Italy, USA, Spain, Argentina, Germany, Uruguay and France) to send
their own creations, to the colection of postcards under the theme
‘bridges’, meaning ‘pontes’ in portuguese. The connection of
this theme to the village of Ponte de Lima, where the contemporary
art exhibition is held, Ponte de Lima, or Bridge of the Lima River,
and its bridge, is obvious, as well as with the name of the art
project itself, Lethes Art <
10cmx15cm artworks, drawings or painting, go beyond these historical
and geographical discourses. Bridges become discourses of
connections, family, friends, humankind, diversity, cultures,
dialogues, of the flow of time, or life itself, of survival or
postacards from the fourteen countries connected are exhibited at the
MUTE – Museum of Terceiros, in the Sacristy Vestibule of the Third
Order. It is a room that gives access from the cloister to the
sacristy, with an altar which was enriched with the retable of St.
Louis IX, the standard of the Third Order with the coat of arms
embroideredin gold thread, and a plaque on the wall with a former
altar frontal depicting the Souls in Purgatory.
