A terrific discovery for the Koboi Project – a photograph from the 3rd October, 1902 inauguration of the monument to Afonso de Albuquerque, the second governor of Portuguese India, in the D. Fernando Square, Belem. (renamed for Afonso de Albuquerque following the republican revolution of 1910) This square is located in front of 18th-century Belém Royal Palace. The delight of this image of the preparations for the arrival of King D. Carlos and the Royal Family for the ceremony is that it is shot from the same point of view as the images of the Kaza Nunteng Porta series highlighting the ‘The fall of Malacca’ relief. The other 3 three reliefs represent the ‘The Delivery of the keys of Goa,’ ‘The Reception of the Ambassador of the King of Narcinga’ and ‘The defeat of the army of the king of Hormuz.’

Agora vou realizar as intervenções de rua improvisadas em Belém, em torno do Monumento aos Descobrimentos, entre os dias 25 e 30 de junho de 2019.

I will now be performing the remaining impromptu street interventions in Belem  around the Monument to the Discoveries between 25th  to 30th June  2019.

Looks like I have done my last intervention at the Jardim da Praça Afonso de Albuquerque. Jane and I were stopped by the Police and the Presidential Palace guard. We were politely but firmly told that we would have to write in to the Palace for permission as we are operating within the Palace’s security perimeter. In the image above you can see the palace wall and police station (in pink), so it was bound to happen at some point.

The Fall of Melaka
