Joana Gonçalves Pereira
Born 1975, in Coimbra. Lives and works in Lisbon.
An architect turned visual artist, in the mid-2010s Joana Gonçalves Pereira embarked in ceramics, having graduated from ArCo in 2017. She has exhibited her work in various group exhibitions exploring novel artistic ways of integrating ceramics. Her practice contrasts the durability of everyday life objects such as food packaging (e.g. disposable plastics and cans) and the fragility of porcelain, an interest she relates to her life in Macau.
