O Triunfo da Morte, Installation by Teresa Lacerda




TERESA LACERDA was born in 1947. She lives and works in Lisbon.


In 1964, she completed the Painting Course at the António Arroio School and, in 1991, the Scenography Course at the Lisbon National Conservatory.


She has regularly held solo and group exhibitions, among which we highlight those held in 2023: “Olhos nos Olhos: ‘Arte Africana’ | Arte Contemporânea e…” at Graça Brandão Gallery, where pieces from her collection of African Art dialogued with pieces by contemporary artists; “Bestiário Africano: Animals from Africa meet those from the LealVeileby duo” at Galeria Graça Brandão, where the artist and collector “summons” animals represented in her African Art collection to dialogue with the “Janeiro Grotesco” exhibition, which included small works depicting cows, pigs, rams and dogs; “Magia no Olhar” at Galeria Graça Brandão, where she presents a selection of African masks from her private collection; and “Wabi-Sabi” at Galeria Verão, where she presents some works shown in 2010 at the exhibition NAMBAN JIN 3 # XXI (Portuguese Exhibition for the Commemoration of the 150th Anniversary of the “Treaty of Peace, Friendship and Trade between Portugal and Japan”, Eye of Gyre Gallery – Gyre Building, Tokyo,  Japan).


In 2017, she presented a painting in dialogue with the tapestries of Jean Lurçat and Mathieu Matégot at Galeria Tapeçarias de Portalegre, and the exhibition “Bestiário” at Livraria Sá da Costa. In 2014, she held the exhibitions “Bestiaire” and “Pingos de Chuva”, the latter at Galeria Diferença, and in 2012, “30×30” and “Painting and Sculpting with Pedro Ramos” in Sintra.


At the same time, between 1974 and 2010, she developed painting and creation works in other materials at the De Natura Gallery in Lisbon, with a special thematic focus on the crossing of cultures, especially from Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Since the early 1970s, she has been working on set designs for theatre, ballet and cinema.
