Artist and Project

Ana Teresa Vicente is an artist based in Lisbon, Portugal. She holds a PhD in Fine Arts – Photography from the University of Lisbon, Faculty of Fine Arts, with a fellowship by the Foundation for Science and Technology (PT). She completed her Master Degree in Painting in 2011, and graduated in Fine Arts – Painting in 2007, also at FBAUL.

The research she’s developing is based on three propositions: What if the archivist’s worst nightmare came true and all our paper-based archives were suddenly lost forever, the body of each document mercilessly eaten away by a strange virus or bug plague? What if all the layers that map and separate the real and the imagined city suddenly collapsed onto themselves? Our ecological odds are just as flimsy, what’s the use in trying to encapsulate fauna and flora in a jar?

“I have been searching for the entrance to the land of nonbeing in old maps endowed with ancient charm and wisdom. If maps can harbor secrets, I’d imagined that they would have to be excavated from fragmented, moth-eaten documents rather than from so-called scientifically rendered modern charts.” — Dung Kai Cheung, Atlas: The Archaeology of an Imaginary City

Supporting Organizations

Ana Vicente's residency is made possible by the support of:


In-situ is a year-round artist residency in the heart of Hong Kong that fosters international exchange through open call applications.

In-situ is Latin for "in place". Our aim is to support artists with an experimental art practice. We are less focused on the final outcome, but rather, on the process of making, and of discovery. We also don’t ask for detailed project proposals, budgets, or schedules during the application process because we believe projects and ideas should be informed after spending time here, "in-situ".
