Exhibition Opening

Her work is featured in the following collections: Museu do Chiado, Serralves Foundation, Museu de Arte Contemporânea do Funchal, EDP Foundation, Coleção António Cachola and also the Coleção Banco Privado. She received the Prémio União Latina prize in 2001.From the principles of assemblage, intervened appropriation and abstract construction, the artist creates objects that appeal to the careful reading of their own processes, surprise and intrinsic nature. Isolated or conceived for dialogues in the space, they have the presence and the tactile appeal of sculpture, but also the resourcefulness of drawing and the intriguing challenge of their latent symbolic reference.

This conviction has had its origin in a practice that the artist has developed from an early age, being trained in observing without any aim in mind, just by letting things enter, in a state of complete receptiveness, by imposing no frontiers, and no judgements (as much as possible). First finding things and then seeking them.
