Who are e-studio Luanda?
The collective of Francisco Vidal, Rita GT, António Ole and Nelo Teixeira are based in the Angolan capital where they are working tirelessly to bolster the profile of Luanda's visual arts scene.
Tiwani Contemporary exhibition
e-studio's first exhibition in the UK takes the form of an artist's studio, where the collective will make new works on site from the strange U.topiaMachine toolkit, housed in a 60 x 60 cm plywood box. Inspired by their own experiences of moving and facing the problem of continuing to make art without the resources or materials, as well as the problems arrising from a new country and cultural context.
Wildly experimental and politically revolutionary, e-studio take great inspiration from Constructivist and Bauhaus artists in their quirky system of art making and exhibiting. We can really think of the collective within the framework of post-internet art, a loose term that encompasses so much these days, but vaguely means the artist is interested in the spread of information and nature of society after the explosion of the internet.
