Excerpt from the text of exhibition “Um momento que se repete continuamente”, 2018

"Carla Rebelo creates a totality from fragments, a time outside time that inhabits her sculptures drawings and books' materiality and beauty. There are lines that cross and intertwine, fabrics, leaves, tree barks...

The moment that her art convokes is both an inner time, lived and eternalized, and an outer time, delimited by history, which looks to the past and projects itself into the future. Without discontinuities, as in the parallel mirrors in which the I-between-mirrors demultiples into reflected images that dissolve into an endless perspective. This art is a science of continuity, everything is connected to everything. It is a web slowly woven through which we rediscover the infinite complexity of the world, the timelessness of art".

Manuel Valente Alves, 2018
