Documentation of an exhibition exposing the fauna and flora of Portugal, organised by Lisbon City Council, the University of Lisbon, through the Faculty of Sciences and the National Museum of Natural History and Science, and the Institute for the Conservation of Nature and Forests, I.P. Presented at the Museum of National History, Lisbon, 2020.

“Portugal has a high wealth of landscapes, natural values ​​and biodiversity. This diversity is the result of the interaction between climate, geology and relief, and accompanied by enormous cultural diversity. The “Variações Naturais” exhibition shows and senses this diversity, through the representation of the main national landscapes and protected areas, offering visitors an impossible journey: getting to know the main Portuguese ecosystems, “gathered” in 1200m2. In this immersive experience, in which all the senses are summoned, travelers climb a mountain, descend into a cave and dive into the ocean depths. Visitors walk around finding plants, animals and fossils, listening to legends and discovering relationships between species, people and landscapes that range from simple sharing of a common space to predation, and from cuisine to literature.”
