Cláudia Amandi

Faculdade de Belas Artes da Universidade do Porto

investigadora integrada

Since 1996 Cláudia Amandi teaches Drawing at the Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Porto (FBAUP). She is a researcher in the “Research Institute in Art Design and Society (I2ADS)” and a Visual Artist. Between 2012 and 2014 she coordinate a project financed by Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation entitled “Atlas Project: FBAUP’s Drawing & Engraving Office “ with the goal to recover, treat, organize and provide public accessibility and dissemination of the FBAUP’s Drawings and Engravings collected in the period between 1958 and 2012 . In addition to teaching, she develops theoretical research around themes associated with the use of drawing in the artistic process, continuing the research she started with her doctorate. The last article – “Walking without leaving the place. The work wall: graphical navigation space” – was carried out in partnership with Professor Paulo Freire de Almeida (Architecture School, University of Minho / Lab2PT) and was published in December 2020. Over the years, her work as a Visual Artist has been converging towards repetition processes, being particularly interested in those who, in their mechanical appearance of execution, displace the referent of the result. Actions such as agglomeration, variation, expansion, saturation, and overlap – of brands and / or materials – have a tendency to build meshes, images or differentiated forms as content multiplication systems.
