The exhibition presented in the project Chain Reaction draws on an earlier one by the artist entitled Brief History of Portugal, which was displayed in 1995 in Módulo Gallery. This was the first time his work was shown in Portugal and proved crucial to his subsequent trajectory. In addition to the works from 1995, the artist presents a sound piece (SONG NC SHARP, 2006) which has not been exhibited for several years, alongside a new piece of work. The first is a recording of the sound of the glass breaking and the second is a sculpture specifically conceived for this project, which includes semi-precious stones that Durham has been collecting over the years.
