Sonia Guggisberg – Bolhas

A cycle takes place in the work of Sonia Guggisberg. It is a cycle of water that, having sprung from a water table, flows on, spills, evaporates, and floods the exhibition venue. Most often, this water is created by light—in videos projected onto space. Here, both light and water are elements that guide the senses; they promote interaction, dialogue, and encounter. These are for the artist art materials that intervene in urban spaces, a quest to restore collective instances and activate social practices.
Guggisberg’s investigation is an exercise of perception that demonstrates just how desertification—this process of environmental regression—also affects social life. The artist’s interventions and video installations are micropolitical actions that seek the reactivation of such values as affection, belonging, bonding, and heritage.

Dear partners, supporters, friends and lovers,

due to the COVID-19 Virus our little ETF! office in Berlin remains closed and we are working from home.

As many fellow artists, creatives and freelancers this Corona crisis has hit us hard.
We had hoped to send out a newsletter this spring informing you all about our 19th venue in Lisbon, which was supposed to open in Carpintarias São Lázaro on the 19th of June 2020.
Now, with all the cancellations and the shut down of cultural life we hope to postpone and for EXAMPLES TO FOLLOW! to still be part of the program of Lisboa Green Capital 2020.
We will keep you posted.

Keep safe.
