Duarte Sequeira is pleased to announce All Watched Over by Emissaries of Loving Grace, the first solo exhibition of London based artist Louis Morlæ in Portugal.
The exhibition explores the conditions of spiritual awakening through the lens of digital technology. Reimagining the gallery as a waystation; a temple for ritual engagement enacted through sculptural gestures – each object in the space becomes a shrine for contemplation and self reflection. Through this idea of digital transcendence the new body of work, encompassing sculpture, installation and video, functions as a simulation in which objects balance, inhabit, and interact with both the physical and digital worlds.
