Artist's Description

Photo taken in Mata, Góis. This is the very deep countryside of Portugual where time does not go by. To travel there means to enter in a strange dimension of something that stoped somewhere in the 80’s mixed with a glimpse of XXI century. It’s the reflection of the politics that the governments ever since the revolution in 1974 have been applying: To forget the east interior more close to Spain and develope the coastline. This kind of policy, made that a major part of the population that used to populate this area immigrated or migrated to somewhere near a big city.

I decided to call it “Going for the kill” because the name of the village on the road sign (Mata) is the same word for “kill” in portuguese. The rest is obvious.
