Joana Pereira’s artistic work ranges from monochrome painting to video and sculptural installations. She is interested in local histories of painting and how the medium always seems to take unexpected paths. Pereira sees painting as something unstable that has the ability to re-shape, transform, and adapt. Her work let’s materials migrate between public and private spaces.
