«Fernando J. Ribeiro
Em Vila Franca de Xira, na varanda semi-circular que une a esquina da Avenida dos Combatentes da Grande Guerra com a Rua Alves Redol, (junto ao Museu do Neo-Realismo), Fernando Ribeiro apresenta uma imensa “bandeira” em duplicado especular que une também as duas simbologias de leitura política, económica e social mais decisivas do mundo ocidental. No longitudinal aparato pictórico aqui proposto, vemos apenas como a bandeira dos Estados Unidos da América absorve a simbologia estelar da bandeira da União Europeia. Com efeito, no espaço quadrangular azul onde normalmente se distribuem as estrelas referentes aos Estados americanos vemos agora as estrelas dos Estados europeus em forma circular, pontuando desse modo uma reflexão sobre a dependência europeia relativamente à omnipotente política norte-americana. Deste modo duplamente simbólico, o artista procura lembrar a invasão americana que desde o segundo pós-guerra e a execução do Plano Marshall tem vindo a transformar a Europa num parceiro político sem peso, cumpridor apenas das intenções de domínio dos EUA. Esta leitura permite-nos afirmar que as invasões dos séculos XX e XXI têm sido concretizadas, sobretudo, através do desenvolvimento de políticas económicas, financeiras e culturais, recorrendo por isso, cada vez menos, à força e às estratégias militares. Em última análise, é o signo e a sua transmutação constante que varrem o espaço físico e identitário, como nova apropriação ou domínio territorial.»
