Having performance studies as a point of interest, Panmela Castro considers that the act of living in common is the work itself. The paintings, as well as the final photograph and other documents collected by the artist, are memories of the event and memories of performance.

In general, the choice of the portrayed takes place from what Panmela names as an affective drift, at random, as the artist develops her relations.

In the compositions, sketches are quickly observed with charcoal and its place of work on the date, as well as furniture and objects. The flowers presented by visitors are constantly represented next to the model, which, like the other objects and spaces, create a chronological suggestion of how the artist interprets her work.
