ARTIST TALKS is a series of conversations that offer the community a chance to meet the artists-in-residence at Zaratan and to gain insight into the creative process.
During this encounter Miriam Panieri will briefly introduce her artistic practice and will give us an insight into the projects under construction during her time in Lisbon.
An activity will be done between partecipants engaging their own experience of travelling and displaceing. A brief exercise to discuss the impermanence of identity when coming into contact with new places.
The conversation will be held in English; participants are invited to engage and ask questions.

MIRIAM PANIERI is an illustrator and multidisciplinary visual artist from Bologna. After graduating in “Editorial illustration” In Academy of Fine Arts she chose Lisbon as the destination to start her artistic career. There, she published her first picture book: "Il costruttore di cornici - O construtor de molduras" (text by Enrico Previato, published by Calboni Edições, 2021).

She’s lived in Ukraine, Portugal, Spain and Italy and traveling has been her main inspiration to challenge her permeability, her own identity and sense of belonging. During her stay in Portugal she experimented these themes with new mediums: creative writing, artistic photography and collage, resulting in several ongoing projects and two exhibitions. Her series "Reutilize Este Corpo", focused on the troubled relationships with our bodies, was exhibited at “Curious Monkey” gallery in a collective exhibition. The same series has been exhibited in a solo exhibition at "Plantasia LX” Art gallery in Lisbon (2021). She actively collaborated with other Lisbon’s artists and collectives such as Mais Uno + 1, EMUA Museum, Curious Monkey cultural association. At TODOS Festival 2022, she hosted the drawing workshop: "Draw your Lisbon, between faces and borders" with Amadea Kovic(artist and PhD researcher) in Santa Clara.
