Individual exhibition at the Magasin Gallery, in Belgrade, resulting from the residency at Art Studio Belgrad.
15th – 21st Aug 2020
Roberta Mestieri is a Brazilian visual artist who currently lives and works in Berlin. After an artistic residency in Belgrade, she shows her work with the influence of experiencing the city.
“Belgrade is a very lively and exciting place, but, at the same time, there is a sense of nostalgia and melancholia in the air. I tried to bring this tension into my paintings. They usually have a lot of layers, that disappear and form a thick material connected with the relation between the colours.”
“I work hard, to get the unexpected.” “The mini clay figures come from my earlier paintings. They are fragile, almost temporary. Maybe, through these sculptures, I seek to explore this notion of a fragile feminine within myself.”
