Ângela Ferreira wins the LOOP 2016 Acquisition Prize

Artist Info

Marlborough Contemporary is pleased to announce that Ângela Ferreira’s video Adventures in Mozambique and the Portuguese Tendency To Forget (2016) has been awarded the LOOP 2016 Acquisition Prize.

The work is particularly concerned with memory, juxtaposing raw anthropological documentation with eurocentric perspectives of a colony at leisure, as a critique of the legacies of colonialism.

The selection jury comprised Ferran Barenblit, Director of MACBA, Barcelona, Dirk Snauwaert, Artistic Director of WIELS, Brussels, and Kathryn Weir, Head of Cultural Development at Centre Pompidou, Paris.

The video, presented at this year’s edition of LOOP Fair, will be included in the LOOP Collection and lodged at MACBA, Barcelona’s Museum of Contemporary Art.

Ângela Ferreira represented Portugal at the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007. Recent exhibitions include MACO, Mexico (2015); CAAA, Guimarães (2015); Stroom, Den Haag (2014); Lumiar Cité, Lisbon (2014); Lubumbashi Biennale, Congo (2013); Stills, Edinburgh (2013). Ferreira recently won Novo Banco Photo Award 2015, the most prestigious contemporary art award in Portugal. She lives and works in Lisbon.
