Portuguese-Brazilian artist, Suzana Queiroga lives and works on the Lisbon / Rio de Janeiro axis, producing works with a wide variety of media, including videos, performances, facilities, inflatable, paintings, drawings and sculptures.
Active since the years 1980, when he participated in the famous exhibition “How are you, Generation 80?” (1984, in Parque Lage / RJ), this record company, painter, designer and teacher, develops poetics that cross the flow issues, of time and infinity. In his large works, including some urban interventions, the experience of expanding the senses can generate spaces of collective immersion.
