*an axial place / a book of art

a plastic writing / a graphic painting

a harmony of forms / a verbal concert

a comprehension of words / a visual metaphor

two autors / two cities

one book / one place*


The challenge was to create a joint work, without prevalence of any of the two disciplines. It was not to illustrate poems or describe pictures, but to create a common work by the hands of two authors, at the same time, in the same place: Zavial, at the southwestern tip of Portugal. The sessions were conducted in August 2013 .

The result of nearly two years of work is an art book with images of Andre Martus and texts, poems , of Dália Dias in her native language, combined and integrated into one single piece.

The original work (measuring 75 x 55 cm, 9 pages, unfolded 50 x 250 cm, 300g Montval paper and covered with sheet iron bronzed black) is finished.

The campaign seeks funding to make a high-quality art edition of the original and unique work.

Different moments of the process of creation.

The processes of expansion of the images and drying lasted weeks.

    No se trata ni de una ilustración de un texto ni de una descripción de unas imágenes. El proceso de creación ocurrió simultáneamente en el mismo momento en el mismo lugar. Esto es lo que hace tan especial esta experiencia. Es una obra de Arte en conjunto, no prevalece ninguna de las dos disciplinas.

    Gracias por tu interés.
