my contribution to the Ar.Co Bazar

I was very pleased to participate in the Ar.Co Exhibition/ Sale for fund collecting.
I had the chance to be in Lisbon at the time and I thought it was a great opportunity to see such a diversity and amount of work displayed in such a great set up and space.
It was as well a very good opportunity to present works from Ar.Co students to a wider audience.
Congratulations to all that made it possible.

Identity rings

The first edition of this rings took place in 2001, when I participated for the second time in the show/sale Rietveld naar de Beurs.
the idea is for the wearer to choose for himself what to put in the ring so it becomes individually different. On another level the ring has its own identity due to the fact that each ring is made individually so there are no two of a kind, although at first sight they may look all the same. Finally they are all made by hand and formed by me so every one and each of the rings has my own hand prints on it there fore my identity.
This rings have become very wanted so i keep on doing them. Soon the third edition will be available.
They can be also found in Amsterdam at , Otro Diseño
www.otrodiseno.com and at Galerie Ra http://www.galerie-ra.nl
And in the Atelier/store of Nininha Guimaraes in Lisbon

Rietveld naar de Beurs 2006

One more year, one more "Rietveld naar de Beurs".
This is a project that happens every year in the Pentecostes (4 and 5 June). The Gerrit Rietveld Academie started together with the Beurs van Berlage, this tradition many years ago and every time it happens it is an enriching experience to participate. Congratulations to the organization and specially to Pieter Elbers that did a great job!
For myself it was as well a successful move, everybody was very enthusiastic about my product and it is always good to have a chance to talk about your work with a stranger. Thank you!

Spring 2006

Now it seems that everybody is into necklaces made with balls (as in: ball, globe, orb; an object with a spherical shape). Here are some of my latest creations, that I had the opportunity to show and sell in "Mundo Mix PT", in Lisbon.
I'm happy to say that it was a big success and , that I got a lot of enthusiastic reactions.

"Que te do mi corazion amor de mi vida" na Cantina Baldracca

"Que te do mi corazion amor de mi vida" na Cantina Baldracca

Venho finalmente anunciar a nova exposição colectiva a acontecer agora, no restaurante Cantina Baldracca. A exposição surge a partir de um texto (um pouco sanguinário) de Ofélia (pseudónimo da Ana), que a Noelle Georg interpreta em fotografia e é acompanhada por corações em cerâmica da Marta Eliseu, que coincidentemente estavam a ser concebidos aquando a concepção do texto. Mais não digo. Deixo-vos desenvolver a curiosidade e ficamos à vossa espera no DIA 18/02/2006 – SÁBADO – ENTRE AS 16H E AS 19H, para uns petiscos à portuguesa.

on going relationship

Wonderful to see how interesting your Tshirts came up! Good job girl!There's definitely an ongoing relationship in between all your pieces of work. I think this relationship is less literal than it may seem at first sigh, thus, it's more about their intrinsic artistic value as metaphors within a wider sense of the field of "Body Transformation" or, even, "transforming embodiment".I'm fond of the way you've been working around & about the beauty of the grotesque and the way that reflects your meaningful understanding of human body, in its full extension,of its bones, muscles, tendons, and even cells...from the big body picture to its smaller units.Lovely Art is your that your virtue adorns with beauty!Rb
