EXHIBITION 8 APRIL – 3 JULY 2021 LÍGIA OLIVEIRA BETWEEN LAND AND SEA BETWEEN THE SEA AND THE SHORE Biography Lígia Oliveira grew up surrounded by the tranquility of the landscapes of southern Portugal, which have inspired her ever since. She initially studied Product Design, and later obtained a PhD in Urban Design in Barcelona, ​​where she had the experience of working in various disciplines and cultures. This helped Oliveira to develop a broader approach to art, by understanding the physical space and its elements, its relationship with other disciplines and to train the eye for details at different scales. Fascinated by the possibilities of expression and investigation of art, with her work Oliveira intends to touch, inform and inspire emotionally for an integrated relationship with nature. Multiplying the elements until they form patterns fascinates her, as well as finding new ways to interact with each other, in a balance between discipline and freedom of expression.

She is the author of several scientific articles, co-author of the book The Economy […]
