Priscila Fernandes


Priscila Fernandes (1981, Portugal) is a visual artist and educator living and working in the Netherlands. Together with Edward Clydesdale Thomson, she is the Head of Department of the Bachelor of Fine Arts BEAR (Base for Experiment Art and Research) at ArtEZ, Arnhem.

Priscila Fernandes’ work – installations, painting, photography, books – is rooted in an ongoing research into education, play, and the dialectics of work and leisure. Through a speculative and fictional approach, her work raises concrete questions about the idea of individual and collective freedom, especially in the context of the widespread precariousness of work in our society.
