1 – 6 September
Vernissage 01 September 6 pm
Amanda Elosa, Sebastian Cobo, and Yasmine Benabdallah met while doing an artist residency at Hangar, Artistic Research Centre in Lisbon, Portugal. These works, some finalised, others in-progress, echo their experiences in Lisbon and interactions with the city.
Looking for new narratives, Elosa’s work uses old love letters to create new crossover stories.
In “De/ Para”, postcard fragments are relocated to create new encounters, indicating the patterns of romantic narratives.
In “Histórias que não foram”, the artist uses old blank postcards to imagine the narratives that could have happened, but did not, giving space for the spectator to be the protagonist.

Amanda Elosa, born in 1993, is a visual artist and researcher. She ‘s graduated in Communication and have a postgraduate in Contemporary Artistic Practices at São Paulo’ Fundação Armando Álvares Penteado (FAAP-SP).
She has already exhibited works at MAB – Museum of Brazilian Art and has been at Kayssá Residency. Elosa’s work talks about the body through visual productions. She studies the body as a mediator between the individual and the world. Contemporary sexuality and relationships are part of her research interests. Her work makes use of various methods and techniques, such as image (painting), three-dimensional (objects and sculpture) and text (publications).
Amanda studies the most varied experiences from the body relationship, investigating substance, narratives and social norms. He is currently a resident of the Hangar Institute, in Lisbon, Portugal. She lives and works in São Paulo.

His work has been shown in several collective exhibitions, fairs and projects inside and outside Chile.
