Shaping Shape is a book on the curatorial project of Andreia Garcia for the Architecture program at Maia Biennial of Contemporary Art ’17.
In Shaping Shape, the enormous scale of the cylindrical volumes of industrial storage (silos) hides specific contexts and imageries. Just as the silos' artistic interventions accentuate their interstitial spaces, the publication, closed in a single notebook with a single fold, is built around a central axis that guides and affects the entire structure. This separator, both visual and mechanical, presents us an alternative beginning or end, in a non-linear experience of the concentric parts. This central space reveals the only moment of visual dialogue between the two works on the same plane, since they are diametrically opposed in reality.
