Ricardo Nunes’ Places of Disquiet

At the age of 21 Ricardo Nunes explored the historically overwhelming center of  Lisbon for the first time on his own.

The last two years he travelled several times through Portugal, following “old memories of places he might have been” – places he visited with his parents to spend time with distant relatives.


He is showing us how important feelings are that we connect to pictures which we form out of blurry memories are – “a simultaneity of foreignness and familiarity”.



“The loneliness that overcomes me in Portugal still has no release.” – Ricardo Nunes
