Guest Artist: SUSANA DE MEDEIROS 21 > 25 JUN E.B. 1 de Chinicato, Lagos
An invitation to take a closer look to the place where we live, and from our daily experiences use our imagination to create forms, objects, words, stories.
Sharing her creative process and privileging the experience, the exploration of several raw materials, and the relations between body and matter, the artist Susana de Medeiros invites us to have our feet on the ground to explore what surrounds us and our head in the clouds to imagine and to fly with our thoughts.
