Tatiana Macedo

Born in Portugal in 1981, of Portuguese and Angolan descent, she lives and works in Lisbon.

Her work develops transdisciplinarily between the practice of installation, photography, film-essay, video and sound, with an interesting exploratory dimension and revealing simultaneously a great technical, critical and conceptual rigor.

She has presented her work with various institutions, galleries, biennales and festivals such as Culturgest (Oporto), MNAC: Museu Nacional de Arte Contemporânea do Chiado (Lisbon), the Stedelijk Museum Bureau (Amsterdam), the Tate Britain (London), the Jeju Museum of Contemporary Art (Jeju Biennial, South Korea), the XXIII Rohkunstbau (Spreewald), the MAAT - Museu de Arte, Arquitectura e Tecnologia (Lisbon), the Iwalewahaus (Bayreuth), Tegenboschvanvreden Gallery (Amsterdam), Künstlerhaus Bethanien (Berlin), Paris Photo (Paris), Photo Basel (Basel), Photo London (London), Art Rotterdam (Rotterdam), Kora Contemporary Art Center (Puglia), Caixa Cultural do Rio de Janeiro or Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (Lisbon).

Her film work has been presented in International Film Festivals.

She won the 1st edition of the Sonae Media Art Award (2015). She was artist in residence at the International Studio Programme at Künstlerhaus Bethanien, (Berlin, 2016). Her film, Seems so long ago, Nancy filmed at Tate Britain and Tate Modern was awarded the SAW Film Prize (American Anthropological Association - Washington D.C. 2014).

In 2020 she was the artist in Focus at the Festival Interseccion - Contemporary Audiovisual Art Festival of A Coruña which dedicated two days to the exhibition of her videographic and filmic work. In 2016 "Orientalism and Reverse" - artist book - was published by Ghost Editions and Kunstraum Botschaft, and "What is Unspoken" - the dialogue between you and these disparate elements" was published by Künstlerhaus Bethanien.
