Uncanny River (The Crossing) (2014), by João Biscainho (1979, Portalegre), is a video installation which, for the purposes of the present exhibition, takes on the configuration of the space hosting it, namely the Amélia de Mello Foundation Gallery. In this relocation process, it simultaneously transfigures the space and is itself transfigured into a sculpture-installation.
