Affective Drift

In the conception of Panmela Castro’s Affective Drift, life is guided by meetings by chance, in a process of feeling liberated to float. Moments of encountering that are aleatory and others that were already written. In this series, the artist let herself go by a movement in territories in which she is taken by a network of affections she builds as she goes.

Panmela has been to Olhos D’água, Salvador and New York. Her next stop with the Affective Drift Series is Dakar.
