Resident Artist 2017/2018
Musa paradisiaca is an artistic project by Eduardo Guerra (Lisbon, 1986) and Miguel Ferrão (Lisbon, 1986), centered in the dialogue. Based on temporary partnerships with entities of varied competence, Musa paradisiaca assumes different forms, maintaining a discursive and participatory nature. Hence derives the proposal for the creation of a thinking family that, to several voices, is affirmed.
Musa paradisiaca has held a number of national and international exhibitions, sessions and presentations, among which “Masters of Velocity”, individual exhibition at the Dan Gunn Gallery (Berlin, Germany, 2016), “Alma-Bluco” CRAC Alsace (Altkirch, France, 2015), “Come back Sir, you’re not from that world. “Individual exhibition at the Dan Gunn Gallery (Berlin, Germany, 2014),” Hearing machines / Hearing of flowers “, individual exhibitions at the Kunsthalle Lissabon and Gallery 3 + 1 , “Collective exhibition”, “Conversations: Recent Portuguese Art in the Serralves Collection”, collective exhibition at the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art (Porto, 2016), “Strange Objects: Proto-Sculpture Essay”, exhibition at the José de Guimarães International Art Center (Guimarães, 2016), “The Haver Museum”, collective exhibition at the Eugénio de Almeida Forum (Évora, 2015), “Le lynx ne connaît pas de frontières”, group exhibition at the Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard (Paris, 2015), “Canteen-Machine”, performance at the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art (Porto, 2015), “How do you catch a fugitive? – Show of convertible objects “, performance at the CAM – Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (Lisbon, 2013) and” Impossible Tasks “, performance at the Palais de Tokyo (Paris, 2013).
