Miguel Faro
Vale de Alcântara

Multimedia artist Miguel Faro proposes a crossed exploration of personal and collective universes through the relations between objects and their image. The workshop’s participants will choose and photograph objects from their domestic sphere which will later occupy the public urban space by being projected into selected spaces in Quinta do Loureiro. This process will promote expression using tools and concepts of contemporary creation such as performance, installation, framing, composition and symbolism.

BIO

Miguel Faro, born in Viseu, works and lives in Lisbon, Portugal. He regularly works with video, photography and installation, operating mostly with matters of identity. The body, its image and the relation between them are recurring themes of his work. More recently he has worked in the project Djzebenzas, following a Lisbon skateboarding community. This project gave rise to works such as the short film "Downhill", awarded by Doclisboa with the prize for best short film transversal to Competitions and Risks.
