Blind Spot

Visual essay and video installation

Blind Spot features the Orphanage "Comunidade Aletheia" in Monção, an institution that welcomes abandoned or at-risk children and promotes their artistic education. After reaching adulthood, they have the opportunity to remain in the facilities on the condition that they keep on with their artistic production.
This project is the result of a four-month contact with the eight young people who were under these conditions, resulting in a set of portraits and photographs of their artistic objects.
