The installation Triple Jump, by Sonia Távora occupies the ancient Safe Box of the Lage’s Mansion. The observer, impeded to enter into the space by a door built with iron bars, detects that the projection of these bars on the ground of the room is marked by adhesive tape. Over them, a poem was inscribed, although as if an indistinct whisper, vaguely seen… In the bottom of the room, a mirror reflects our frustrated attempt  to access it and our unsuccessful hope to decipher its secret.
