Visual Artist

Sandra Lapage

Sandra Lapage obtained a Masters in Art from the Maine College of Art in 2013. She has participated in solo and collective exhibitions in Brazil, Europe and the United States (such as the Ribeirão Preto Art Museum in 2006 and Gowanus Loft New York in 2014/15). Sandra has taken part in several artist residencies, including in 2014 at the Château Mercier (Switzerland) and the NARS Foundation, the Camac Art Centre in 2016, and the Massachussets Museum of Contemporary Art in 2017. In addition to her solo work, she has developed collaborations with 9 other artists and designers as part of the collective Eclusa in the Vão independent art space in São Paulo.

For her residency at the Château de Goutelas, her project involves a sculpture created from recycled materials. The work is based on the theme of imminent ecological destruction resulting from the excessive production and consumption of consumerist agendas. Her works give an impression of senseless excess, of chaos in the face of evironmental destruction, and the ambivalence with which politicians view science.

Residency postponed to 2021.
