The Artistic Residence began on September 7, and on September 16 Mariana Caló and Francisco Queimadela will be in the space of the Artistic Residencies to present the work that they are developing in the scope of “Sonic Geometry”, and that will integrate the 3rd Cycle of the project, in January 2019. Recently the pair of artists won the Paulo Cunha e Silva Art Prize.
Mariana Caló (PT, 1984) and Francisco Queimadela (PT, 1985) began their sharing and collaboration during their studies at the Fine Arts Academy in Porto and have been working as an artist duo since 2010. Their practice is developed with a privileged use of moving images, which intersects installative and site-specific environments, and also drawing, painting, photography and sculpture.
