Ângela Ferreira

Ângela Ferreira grew up in South Africa where she studied fine art. Her work engages with the ongoing impact of colonialism and post-colonialism on contemporary society. Based on in-depth research, she combines photography, video, and sculpture, often in the form of installations. She represented Portugal at the 52nd Venice Biennale (2007), where she continued her investigations into the ways European modernism did or did not adapt to the realities of Africa by tracing the history of Jean Prouvé's “Maison Tropicale.” Ferreira lives, works and teaches fine art in Lisbon.
