(Windward / Leeward)

After a two-month residency with Fundação Luso Americana (FLAD), this is one of the pieces that summarises part of my research in Loulé.    I came across the border that divides the Algarve into West and East / Windward and Leeward. This border, moulded by the influence of the winds and thus its geomorphology, has an uncertain and ancient historical origin.    The nautical term "Windward / Leeward" refers to the side of the boat facing the wind, coincidentally where the prevailing winds in the Algarve blow - from the west.    This invisible border was thus materialised in the exhibition space, placing the recorded winds in their respective directions.
