"The installation by Gabriela Albergaria in Museu da Luz (much like the overall themes she uses in her body of work) points toward modes of expression from outside the world or art and culture, which she then incorporates into that very world. The artist uses materials and practices which an untrained audience might relate to a universe quite diverse from that of artistic production – not one that is set earlier, or is more important, but one that runs parallel to it." - João Pinharanda

In this exhibition there are three moments:
the drawing in seven parts Sobreiro, Herdade da Calada, Alentejo , representing a corktree (emblematic local species and national tree of Portugal), exhibited in the museum entrance;
the work Onze enxertos para castas alentejanas - 11 bronze samples of vine feet, exposed in a showcase at the atrium, which reproduce grafts of wine grape varieties of the Alentejo region;
the installation Untitled - holmoak, olive tree and oleaster segments,branches and trunks assembled in the Luz Room, recreating and shaping the nature and building a scenic and dynamic space where artificial and organic to challenge each other.

Gabriela Albergaria used for the construction of the work Untitled (Luz Room) trunks and fragments from the Autumn pruning of endemic trees at Noudar Nature Park (Barrancos, Alentejo).
