PHLORYSTA cordially invites you for the opening of its fourth installment, entitled "HyperMercado".
Taking place inside Mercado do Rato, it will become a temporary exhibition space for 11 invited artists to show their work inserted into the marketplace's iconic architecture.
PHLORYSTA is an independent cultural initiative produced and curated by João Viotti, which is focused on engaging forms of artistic production parallel to standardized circuits.
Included in this edition is Tiago Gomes' long-lived independent publication Bíblia, which will be showing all of its previous issues from 1996 to the present.
The opening will also include an informal dj-set and a late-night barbecue in the spirit of the Santos Populares' tradition, held by the owners of the two restaurants from the marketplace - one for meat and the other for fish.

The project COMPOST is based on the phenomenon of ‘the garden’ and will be presented as an installation with collective as well as individual works in Eks-Rummet.
The exhibition will show new works, cultivated during a longer period in relation to the exhibition title COMPOST, alluding to a compositional and theoretical approach, as much as a tangible process in a circular system of decay and nourishment, decomposition and creation.
A dense and odorous atmosphere, illumined by sunken violet growth-lights. Garden tools and paraphernalia stands about, marking the threshold between the gardener’s hand and the earth, plants and beings, that make up the garden’s spirit. Fragments of a toolshed, the cemetery’s waste piles, a darkened greenhouse and the everyday escapism of allotments.
When we enter ’the garden’ we access another realm, we move and are moved by its systems and are met by its agents. Here we find our place on conditions of the garden. Like the body’s intestines, so too is the compost a digestive system, with its pantheon of worms, bacteria and other microorganisms. In all its rottenness and fertility, fermentation and nutrition, we find the compost as a vital organ in the garden—and as an ideal of our exhibition.
Be welcome in the compost.
