“Shelter ByGG”, by the creator Gabriela Gomes, is a project that brings to Guimarães public space a habitable sculptural object. In exhibition on Plataforma das Artes (Arts Platform), the installation has one double bedroom, one WC with shower and a space for small meals at the entrance.
The experimental module combines sculpture, design and architecture, defying new experiences of space and questioning the relationships of artistic fruition and habitation issues. “Shelter ByGG” reflects Gabriela Gomes’ working line of converting sculptural objects into design objects, turning them into every day products. In its construction and functioning eco-sustainable solutions where associated, such as the use of non-polluting and recyclable materials and solar energy.
“Shelter ByGG” is also an itinerant object and may circulate to other locations without the need of infrastructures. So, the creator invites those interested in inhabiting this artistic manifestation to enjoy an innovative and unexpected experience.
