Ana Morgadinho (Lisbon, Portugal) lives and works in Lisbon.
Degree in Paiting and Fine Artes by Ar.Co - Centro de Arte e Comunicação Visual, Lisbon (2011).
The artist makes use of diverse materials and media ranging from painting, drawing, object, installation and sculpture. Her body of work focuses mainly on the exploration of materials, their potential and connections, based on philosophical, literary and scientific references. Looking at culture, nature, organic, mineral and intellectual, blurs the boundaries of each field, showing the network of connections between all things and the human being. She thinks the world in its fragility and ephemerality, accepting encounters or randomness brought by materials, shapes, objects and spaces.
In a selection of individual and collective exhibitions and projects in which she has participated, the following stand out: A noite bate em branco, Brotéria, Lisbon (2021); a palavrar (solo exhibition), NowHere Lisboa (2021); True Node, Galeria Artes-Mota Galiza, Porto (2020); HSD (Hic Svnt Dracones) (solo exhibition), Galeria A Montanha, Lisbon (2018); Périplos-Arte Portugues de Hoy, CAC - Center for Contemporary Art in Malaga, Spain (2016); Terreno (solo exhibition), Geological Museum of Lisbon (2016) and Ábaco (solo exhibition), Galeria AZ Lisboa (2015).
