The Artist Talks offer the community a chance to meet the artists-in-residence at Zaratan and to gain insight into the creative process.
On the 27th of November, Veridiana Leite will be available to take visitors on small individual guided tours and to introduce the imagery of the pieces that make up the exhibition “Habitat”, shown at Zaratan.
>>> BIO: VERIDIANA LEITE (São Paulo, 1979) has a degree in Visual Arts from Escola Massana, Barcelona and a postgraduate degree in Theater of the Senses from the University of Girona. Lives and works between São Paulo and Lisbon. Painting is her main medium of expression, but she also works with sculpture, installation and photography. Her artistic practice seeks unconventional perspectives within the same space, based on the tension between abstraction and the constructed image. The pictorial compositions generate luminosity, vital energy impregnated with organic and natural forms in contrast to geometric and urban forms, addressing a connection between the interior and the exterior. She participated in several artistic residencies, among them: Obras Foundation (Alentejo 2020), Hangar, (Lisbon, 2020), Casero Residência (Rio de Janeiro, 2019), Agora Collective (Berlin 2012), Nena´s Contemporary art (Chiang Mai, Thailand, 2013). Among the group exhibitions we highlight “Clube” at Espaço Nowhere (Lisbon, 2020), “Le Salón DES Refusés” at Casa da Luz (São Paulo, 2019), “Pensaram ser paisagem, era corpo” at BNP Paribas Bank, through Kura arte (São Paulo, 2018). She held some solo exhibitions, among them "Passages" at Galeria Sala da Praça (Ribeirão Preto, 2015) and "Azul" at Adearte gallery (Ribeirão Preto, 2013).
