24th Oct 2013, The National Archeological Museum, Piazza San Marco, National Pavilions of Cuba, Venice Art Biennale 2013.
This touching video located above archeological sculptures, “complete” the one in the center who misses her head. Artist Pedro Costa shows in his work the face of a girl he filmed for a while in Lisbon, a girl that lived a tough life between drugs and poverty. Here in the museum she attracted my attention with her expressive face. Her expression refutes the sculptures next to her that represent wealth, luxury and status, all what only archeological sculptures mostly have along their existence.
