SHADOWS OF TIME
by Mário Macilau
Mário Macilau was born in 1984 in Mozambique. Trained as a documentary photographer, he is the auteur of Growing In Darkness
[Kehrer, 2016]. On instagram, he defines himself as a “human rights / environmental activist
”. Macilau seeks to encourage positive exchanges between cultures, places and perspectives. In his work Shadows Of Time, Macilau overlays realities, fictions, imperialisms and its myths. In its fourth dimension, his work challenges our own perception of reality and representation of his country–often distorted by decades of visual stereotypes and stigmas. MOVART
Gallery, founded by curator / entrepreneur Janire Bilbao in Angola and Portugal, is a platform for artists in provenance and working in Africa.
