11.06.2021 We are happy to host the exhibition “A Necessidade do Gesto,” by the actual artist in residency Pauline Guerrier.

19.03.2021 La Junqueira Artists Residency is very pleased to announce the arrival of the artist Pauline Guerrier, our seventh resident who will develop a ceramic project with the dancer Ilan Gratini from March to June 2021. By the age of 29, Pauline Guerrier had spent most her lifetime attending workshops in Italy, Portugal, Chile, the Maghreb and many other countries meeting weavers, glassblowers, stone builders, glaziers, mosaicists and many artisans. These workshops helped her observe, analyse and learn about artworks around the world. In an ardent quest to learn ancestral techniques, The topics of Ecology, Science, Faith, and Belief interested her a lot and led her to carry out further researches in those fields. The work has no technical or spatial limit. It is fascinating to see the drawings and the sculpture works that addresses several inexpressible emotions within it.

Our artists in residence, while complying with all the safety measures, will reinvent their work and adapt to the circumstances. “During this time of uncertainty, we decided to carry on with our residency at La Junqueira residency and see how it can be adapted to sanitary measures. It’s a challenge for us and our practice, and we hope to be able to share about this experience at the end of our stay. “Warm regards to all of you. Take care of yourselves.” Thank you artists for trying to making it work gently!
