The starting point of this catalogue was an exhibition scheduled at the Museu Colecção Berardo in Lisbon to show the work Maison Tropicale, which Ângela Ferreira developed for the representation of Portugal in the Venice Biennial 2007. In the exhibition ‘Hard Rain Show’ she also showed older pieces and a new work especially developed for that show.
The publication catches up with her work, gives background information and contextualizes her new project. It is thought of as a continuation of the publication Maison Tropicale, and according to Arne, the designer, formally continues part of the design.
