As Paredes Ganham Vida 2007
Collaboration with Luis Simões
























As Paredes Ganham Vida, Mata Nacional dos Sete Montes, Tomar, 2007


Nuno Marta created a volunteer project for the rehabilitation of Mata Nacional dos Sete Montes (National Forest of the Seven Hills), Tomar, Portugal. This project was focused on restoring peoples lost memories and use of this natural space. As part of bringing the community back to the forest Carolina Rito was invited to curate an artistic event. As Paredes Ganham Vida (Walls back to life) became an amplification of this rehabilitation work. Our intervention was at a derelict olive oil press, once used by the monks of Convento de Cristo. The roof had fallen in leaving the space under the open sky and occupied by nature. With an archeological eye this location and it´s tools were rediscovered, restoring and making a reconstituted memory of this forgotten space.
