“You could think of Dalila Gonçalves as an alchemist, after all she has described using ‘materials to speak of themselves.’ Hers is not a workshop grinding away at making gold though. She is interested in the value of more humble matter: sand speaking of sand, for example. Individual grains poetically shifting shape to form something new – but still sandy. Her exhibition title at Lehmann + Silva, ‘Nem tudo no navio se deteriora no porão’, loosely translates into English as ‘not everything in the ship rots in the hold’. As far as Gonçalves is concerned, it sails into new territory.”
