In 2018 Manel Alao joins Public Reality and invites Sérgio to exhibit his light sculpture “Hope” and co-design several other light installations for the Mescla festival in Viseu.
When we see a boat, we can wonder why is it here ?
where did it come from, where is it going ?
We can fantasize and imagine answers
We can flip through our imagination
giving an imaginary valuation to the plausibility
of each of our imagined answers,
rate them on a scale
Letting our minds wander is of great value
At the same time we may not forget
for a lot of people a boat, just means hope
the hope of staying alive and reaching the otherside
where life will be safer.
