Daniela Ângelo

Daniela Ângelo (1996, Almada) lives and works in Lisbon.

 

She studied Photography at Ar.Co - Centro de Artes e Comunicação Visual, Lisbon.

 

Her work focuses on the everyday perception of the spatial, social and historical dimension of cities. For the artist, speculating about what she sees daily is an equally simple and complex exercise, as it implies rethinking the way individuals direct their objective and emotional attention to usually ignored spaces and situations.

 

In 2020, she was shortlisted for Vila Franca de Xira Photography Biennial and recently had her first solo show, “Meteoro”, Duplex Air, Lisbon (2022). She participated in several group shows, such as “Perguntas à Ficção”, Edifício Arco-Íris, Elvas (2022); “Quem Nos Salva?”, M.A.C.E. – Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Elvas, Elvas (2022); “Matter- Affect”, Galeria No·No, Lisbon (2022); “Sleepers Eyes”, Buraco, Estrela (2022); “Gravitas”, Fundação Leal Rios, Lisbon (2022); “Depois do Banquete”Teatro Thalia, Lisbon (2022); “Error 417: Expectation Failed”, Galeria Municipal do Porto, Porto (2021); “Casa da Dona Laura Itinerante”, Casa do Capitão, Lisbon (2021); “BF20 - Bienal de Fotografia de Vila Franca de Xira”, Vila Franca de Xira, Lisbon (2021).

 

In 2021, Ângelo was invited to participate in the conference “Lisboa Ano Zero: com Catarina Botelho e David Gueniot”, Teatro do Bairro Alto, Lisbon.
