Over a rectangular containment of water, a sparkling image is refracted, flickering in space. The work of Anna Costa e Silva, “Fire on Lake” (2018), makes possible an unlikely encounter between fire and water. The work consists of a pin-point projection of small lights that ignite and extinguish, images of an almost extinct fire, in an aquarium filled with water, close to the ground. The result is a luminous and unexpected relationship between water and embers that seek a solid surface for projection, creating traces and light reflections on the walls of the glass containment.
Occupying the Project Room, the visitor is invited to penetrate this dark environment, surrounded by a state of mystery and contemplation when observing this kind of sky reflected in the water.
