Vigil

Vigils are paintings-memories of happenings that enter the night in Panmela Castro's studio, at times more behaved, and still at other times, accompanied by dancing and drinking. Vigil is about belonging. "Speaking of me from the mirror of the other: experiences that become politics based on this encounter", according to the artist.
