MONITOR Lisbon has the pleasure to announce its next exhibition, The Lobster Loop featuring works by Tomaso de Luca, André Romão and Andreia Santana, opening on 29th September, until 18th November 2017.
The exhibition will debut new works by the three artists. The invitation was proposed due to the common ground of the three artists, which often deal with sculptural practices that come from an investigation through human aspects and sciences, reflecting on economical, cultural and political systems in a contemporary context.
The Lobster Loop appears from an e-mail exchange by the artists, imagined as a fictitious post-apocalyptical dive bar set in a dystopian future. In this fictional future, the artists develop a practice “in context” where the works are inscribed as possible artefacts, tools and memorabilia. The Lobster Loop exists in a reality where time, genetics, gender, politics and economics are dissolved.
The exhibition will also feature a text by Sofia Lemos, inspired by the artists’ exchange based on counter-historiographic and speculative history-writing methodologies.
This exhibition will unveil the main intentions for MONITOR in Lisbon, having an experimental and fresh approach, investing in young art practices and establishing connections between Rome and Lisbon’s art scenes. 

Exhibiting artists: André Romão, Andreia Santana, Tomaso de Luca.
