Pure Print

Artist in Residence

23 – 27 March

Joana Maria PereiraThe intermittent experience: fleeting surfaces

Joana Maria Pereira’s practice is situated within and between the media of printmaking, photography and drawing. Expanding printmaking beyond its frame, the artist explores the hybrid nature of print medium by making use of less familiar materials along with an original technical approach; considering equally the manual and mechanical (re)production of images. During this residency at School of Fine Arts of the University of Porto, the artist plans to explore the presence of unexpected and invisible circumstances within the print process, something that she has been investigating for some time now and that follows the main topics of her research. Characterized by a prevailing sense of fragility, the work comprises a certain sense of impermanency, which reflects her fascination with the dichotomy between that which is simultaneously displayed and concealed.
