My tribute to FERNANDO LEMOS (1926-2019), a great multidisciplinary artist (Luso-Brazilian) who in one of his photos of shadows of a tree on the ground, subverting the order, called it LIGHTS ON THE GROUND directing attention, not to the tree, but to the light and shapes that the spectator could recognize.
Lemos’ friend Fernando Azevedo says – inspired by Lemos’ works -: “the truth is made of two truths: one ordered, the other that it refuses. However, the imaginary is not lodged between the two, but in the risk of the simultaneous trapeze that is made with both”.

The place is the city of Capitólio (MG-Brasil), but in fact it doesn’t matter in this case because what I’m aiming at is the visual concatenation and the typology.
