Alice Quaresma has been experimenting with materials that allow her photographs to be sensorial and playful, pushing the boundaries of photography as a flat surface. She uses images from her personal photo archive to elaborate on the idea of displacement and identity. The painted lines over the images break the perfection of the camera and bring the beauty of the hand gesture to the foreground, the work questions photography’s rigid assertion of objectivity. The artist uses her fascination for the ocean as a place of discovery. Alice explores the ludic world of photography experimenting with the condition of a work in progress, bringing less rational qualities to her photographs.
