Sebastião Castelo Lopes: They are Books

6-8pm Thursday 15 September 2016

Sebastião Castelo Lopes is an artist from Portugal living in London completing an MA at Wimbledon in Drawing. He prints images of common and discarded items onto old books, seeking to transform those everyday objects into something precious and worth looking at.

For this installation at C4RD, Castelo presents a number of ‘floating books’ filled with these sets of images, allowing the spectator to read, touch and walk around them.

The work can be viewed at the receptions (all welcome) and by appointment at 2 – 4 Highbury Station Road, Highbury Islington N1 1SB, London.  C4RD is a Registered UK Charity 1123530, and would particularly like to acknowledge the support for this exhibition of the Dovehouse Trust.
