C.B.Aragão & Cristina Filipe

body part and / or fragment of something preserved for the purposes of devotion that usually belongs to a sanctified person. The cult of the relic connotes pilgrimage. Groping paths. These paths are slowly covered to reach a place where “the silence of time dwells between words” and in which a fragment, a proof, of the existence of someone or something that is venerated is found. This sacred and mystic relic awakens in us an unutterable effect that transcends and carries us, submerged in redeeming light, to a place between where one started and the place to which one is walking.
