Mensua refers to poetic, literary and philosophical sources from the 20th century, creating vibrant paintings that mobilise transient layers of the historical imagination. There is an immediate invitation to decipher, a search for records in memory, a search in our mental archives, and the sensation of anxiety in relation to the meaning of the piece accompanies a sensation of déjà vu.
