Patrícia Almeida is a photographer and co-founder with David-Alexandre Guéniot of GHOST Editions. Lives and works in Lisbon. She holds a degree in History from New University of Lisbon and a PhD from Goldsmiths College in London. She is interested in photography as a language and territory of research and artistic creation. Her exhibitions often take the form of installations across multiple media and imaging materials: photographic prints, artist books, posters, newspapers, videos or projected images. Her projects often start out as books or artistic publications, an important part in her work.

In 2009, she was nominated for the Besphoto Award for her exhibition and book ‘Portobello’.

Since 2003, she has been part of the POC / Piece of Cake, a network of European and North American artists working with photography and video.

Pedro Vaz, Maputo, 1977.

Graduated in Painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon (2006). Lives and works in Lisbon and São Paulo.

Pedro Vaz is currently a resident artist at Pivô, São Paulo, where he is developing the Caminho do Ouro project, which includes an expedition to the historic Caminho do Ouro. Last September he participated in the LABVERDE 2016 Artistic Immersion in Amazonia residence, in Manaus, Brazil, organized by the National Research Institute of Amazonia and Manifesta Arte e Cultura.

His work is currently shown at Pentimento, Anozero Biennial of Contemporary Art of Coimbra and Terra Firme, individual exhibition at Baró Jardins, São Paulo.

He was supported by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and Duplacena for the Monólito project (2013) and for the Tour du Mont-Blanc project presented by The Temps d’Images Portugal Festival, at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Chiado, (Lisbon, 2014).

His work, mostly in painting and video installations, focuses on research about landscape. It carries out a reflection about the exercise of power inscribed in the cross between the artist’s capacity to represent and the representable condition of nature, implying what is meant by space, place and landscape. Personal contact with the place is essential to his practice and his projects often include an expedition.
