Expedition

Lisbon From 29 June to 28 July 2017

Presentation
For the „Expedition“ Series, Luís Troufa sought inspiration in documental images that depicted an odyssey across the limits of human survival. In particular the „Endurance“ expedition that first explored the „alien“ zone of Antarctica under extremely adverse conditions.

The „Endurance“ expedition is here a metaphor for self-discovery, the true expedition. Portraits of adventurers, their heads covered by noise and ice, remind us that the road to discovery is one of disorientation and loss of sense of identity. The dog, Man’s best friend, reminds us how lonely this discovery can be. And a tiny canvas of a stranded boat points out that not always do we reach the port.
