Marlene Almeida – PASSENGER


Always true to her language and thought, Marlene Almeida surpasses herself constantly. Her senses are sharp and always thirsty by nature. Her view maps the path, directing in a tireless search for new natural discoveries.
While always focusing on the concern about the 'nature of time' and being faithful to the connection with the earth, the artist uses this as material for her paintings and objects. The artist presents now, for the exhibition at the Latin America Memorial, an intervention in the external space - exactly where the concrete replaced the green, the artist presents a sort of redemption or Memory of the Atlantic Forest: a long list of names of trees cut in adhesive and applied as a catwalk on the ramp entrance to the gallery Marta Traba.

Marlene Almeida, born 1942 in Bananeiras, Brazil, lives and works in João Pessoa, Brazil.






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.
