Work I - The Tragedies

CHIADO PALACE COLLECTION

Artistic Story:

Palácio Chiado History
Who will tell us the story?
The History will be served by a Mute Narrator, who dresses as a Butler.
He will change his Personality, according to the unfolding of the Events….

The Butler serves an effervescent Tea perhaps deliberately culminating in Tragedy. On 25 November, in the possession of D. Francisco de Paula of Portugal and Castro, 8th Count of Vimioso and 2nd Marquis of Valença, the Palace is reduced to rubble by violent fire. Survivor, in Silver, the same Teas service, suffers terrible tremors, in 1755 with the earthquake of 1 of November that destroys what was left of the Building.
This work evokes the two unforgettable tragedies, succeeding, so they cohabit together in the same work…
End of Desolation…
