Past Resident
2019: Pollock-Krasner Foundation

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.

Rasmus Søndergaard Johannsen

Rasmus Søndergaard Johannsen creates process-lead works across mediums such as installation, photography and sculpture. Concerned with the transformative abilities of elements and the properties that make up materials, Johannsen engages a scientific approach to his subjects. He creates a ‘formula’ of deconstructed and reassembled components, which is then left to external factors, such as the atmosphere, to determine the outcome.

Rasmus Søndergaard Johannsen has exhibited work at Kunst Bygningen i Vrå, Denmark; Pragovka Gallery, Prague; and KW Institute of Contemporary Art, Berlin, among others.

Amanda Abi Khalil has curated exhibitions at the National Museum of Beirut; Temporary Art Platform, Beirut; and Center of Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw, among others.
