Teresa Viana

In her practice, Teresa Viana materializes tactile thoughts into paintings, and introduces synesthetic elements in her works through the use of thick and heavy layers of encaustic. She does so by using a method she has developed over the years, with the goal of elevating the sculptural dimension of encaustic techniques.

Teresa Viana has exhibited at A.I.R Gallery, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, University of São Paulo; and São Paulo Museum of Modern Art, among others.

Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz

Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz produce installations that choreograph the tension between visibility and opacity. Their films capture performances in front of the camera, often upsetting normative historical narratives and conventions of spectatorship, as figures and actions across time are staged, layered and re-imagined. Their performers are choreographers, artists and musicians, with whom they are having a long-term conversation about the conditions of performance, the violent history of visibility, the pathologization of bodies, as well as companionship, glamour and resistance.

Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz have exhibited work at PARTICIPANT INC, New York City; Kunsthalle Zürich; and Gwangju Biennale, among others. Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz will represent Switzerland at the 2019 Venice Biennale.
