Museum of Urban Art
Allow yourself to be surprised by the urban art dotted around the gardens and buildings of the park.
The Museum of Urban Art reflects the disruptive, bold, and urban spirit of Taguspark, and embodies the values that the Knowledge City wishes to convey to the community. Sharpen your senses and allow yourself to be surprised by the park’s gardens and garages, and discover a series of daring, challenging and creative works by various internationally acclaimed Portuguese artists, including Bordalo II, Clo Bourgard and Osir. The museum is an invitation to introspection and reflection on the society and the world we live in.« First ‹ Previous 1 2 3

Like the Squirrel, the work Plastic Partridges, represented by a partridge and four chicks, forms part of a series of works by the artist Bordalo II, called Big Trash Animals, which aims to draw attention to the contemporary problem of rubbish, waste and pollution, and their effects on our planet. The Portuguese artist aims to propose a different way of looking at our habitual behaviours. The idea is to represent an image of nature, in this case animals, made with that which destroys it. The animals used are extinct or endangered local species.

In the words of the artist: “This piece represents the surreal underground gardens that exist in the most secluded corners of my weighing… now they flourish in reverse photosynthesis in the underground corners of Taguspark.

“Ending” celebrates the end of the day, the sunset. It’s such a simple feeling and at the same time so hard to describe. It is a chaotic scenario, where the local flora gives way to the nocturnal fauna and the souls are lost. The clumsy hurry, they can’t miss another barrage of uncontrollability.
Strange that the earth is what sets ahead, but the poor thing of the sun is that set. What if we conditioned our experience simply on what we see, and assumed that the sun is the one that circles the earth? We wouldn’t be wrong.
Garagem Núcleo Central
The portal symbolizes the entry and exit of human beings in what is their day-to-day between the dichotomy work and home, family and colleagues, news and confessions, sensations and emotions. Every day the Taguspark Portal is a different entrance to a different exit.
