Caretos

Deeply ingrained in the cultural tapestry of northern Portugal, the 'Caretos' festivities are a fascinating amalgamation of mysticism, ancient rituals, and a madness of sorts that can only be translated as indelible tension. For its latest exhibition, Made in Situ unveils a convergence of different elements that speak to this indelible, ritualistic tradition.

Seven handcrafted, ornamental stools, inhabited by the spirits of 'Caretos', are joined by Charles Fréger's piercing portraits from his ongoing series, "Wilder Mann." These are all held together by a scenographic landscape built by Made in Situ, taking us on a journey where madness meets mystical—an endeavour to depict an unseeable energy passed on through tradition.
