ILUSTRARTE’18, Biennial International Exhibition of Children’s Books Illustration

Pedro Cabrito + Isabel Diniz arquitectos


Project description

Storyline Inspired by the words of the sculptor Alberto Carneiro - "drawing is a writing of the body" - we propose a solution that materializes as a writing of space, a writing made matter by the presence of a continuous moving line. The line as synthesis and elementary mark of the act of drawing becomes, thus, a three-dimensional construction that entangles the visitors in a graphic and dynamic plasticity, functioning like display support of all the 150 illustrations and unifying the whole intervention. This line is thin as a trace, unpredictable as a scribble, pure in its geometric rigor, is the thread that serves the protagonism of the pictures and interconnects their narratives. Its minimal quality structures the space of each room and invites us to spontaneous interaction, enhancing a perceptive experience of unexpected relationships and overlaps.
