If art, and we all know it, creates new worlds within the world and establishes itself as the proposal of an alternative reality closer to the universe of desire and fantasy, the French artist Luc Brevart bases the entire His work in creating imaginary geographies created from real ones, in this case those defined by the Portuguese Discoveries, but where their role is reduced to providing an escape to other domains of the gaze and imagination ;O. The relationship with Portugal that he has cultivated in his work as an artist and in his professional career (he was the curator in Arras of the exhibition commemorating the 25th anniversary of the CPS and collaborated with the animation festival ;o Monstra) reveals itself in this silkscreen in the parallelism it establishes between Arras and Lisbon, playing playfully with the map of Europe and placing face to face two figures who influenced their cultural destinies: Erasmus (1466-1536) and Fernando Pessoa (1888 -1935).
