António Guimarães Ferreira (Lisbon, 1975) is an artist and audiovisual creator investigating spaces and communities in a drift open to poetry and reflection. His artistic practice is viewd as a field of experimentation to think and propose relationships and affinities between spaces, objects and bodies.

In 2015, he won first place in the public art competition “Criarte” and spent two years at Mart as a resident artist, one of which as a fellow.

Between 2016 and 2018 he developed the project “Moradia” in an uninhabited house in Algés (Lisbon) where, throughout sculpture, installation or performance, a practice of intimacy with a closed space and the objects contained therein was nurtured. “Moradia”, presented the solo exhibition “no ghosts” and hosted the group show “Middle Name”.

Taking part in residences in India (Jaipur, 2017) and South Korea (Gwangju, 2018) has allowed for research to transmigrate from a specific place into the public sphere. From now on, the capture of moving images establishes itself as the main form of mediation and the 2019 exhibitions “Visão Monocular (Monocular Vision)” and “Farol (Lighthouse)” are the result of this process. Patterns of circulation, distribution and control, urban narratives imposed or interpreted by the community materialize from an intimate and everyday research committed to the search for affinities, bonds and similarities.
