CARUMA,
2014 - 2021
























Ceramics and basketry have walked side by side without really crossing each other.
In this context arises Caruma, a series of vessels, containers, formed by a mixed technique – earthenware and basketry - demonstrating the possible relationship between two different construction fields, creating a relationship of dependency between them. On the one hand the earthenware with a strong tradition in the specific context in which the project was carried out (Caldas da Rainha, PT) and on the other the Angolan basketry - where part of my roots come from - particularly the sewed coiling technique. This two materials create a relationship that is familiar to us; basketry that is lasting to the daily scale, earthenware that is the historical range. It is intended the intercultural dialogue that mixes closeness to what is far away.

TAMBOR D’ILHA
2019







































Creative Residence in Mindelo, Cape Vert occured during URDI,
an event dedicated to Crafts and Design whose main subject this edition was Music. Along with a team of Tamboreiros of Kola San Jon - artisans who make and play drums for San Jon festivities, Adalberto da Graça (from Brava), Bartolomeu dos Reis (Santo Antão/ São Vicente), José Miranda (São Vicente), Sebastião Monteiro (Santo Antão), Vlademiro dos Reis (Fogo) and me. This ritual is a strong tradition in the archipelago, and his knowledge travels from father to son, across the country and his diasporic landscapes.

Nowadays, less and less people know how to build the instrument so, during this residence, our goal was to unbuilding it so we could understand it better, the differences between islands - materials, language or rhytms -, learn about his history that crosses several countries as Portugal or Brasil, looking at his creoule dimension. The exhibition was thought and produced in colaboration with The Home Project duo, Álbio Nascimento and Kathi Stertzig.
