Musa paradisiaca is a dialogue-based artistic project by Eduardo Guerra and Miguel Ferrão. Founded on temporary partnerships with individual and collective entities of varying competence, Musa paradisiaca assumes different formats, while always maintaining a discursive and participatory reference. Hence, it proposes to gradually construct a thinking family which is revealed by many shapes and voices.
Musa paradisiaca has been shown at various national and international exhibitions, sessions and presentations, namely “Alma-Bluco”, an individual exhibition at CRAC Alsace (Altkirch, França, 2015), “Come back Sir, you’re not from that world. Please come back Sir, you’re from this world”, an individual exhibition at Dan Gunn Gallery (Berlin, Germany, 2014), “Machines’ Audition / Flowers’ Audition”, individual exhibitions at Kunsthalle Lissabon and 3+1 Contemporary Art Gallery (Lisbon, Portugal, 2014), “The Coming Museum”, a group exhibition at Fórum Eugénio de Almeida (Évora, Portugal, 2015), “Le lynx ne connaît pas de frontières”, a group exhibition at Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard (Paris, France, 2015), “Canteen—Machine”, a performance at Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art (Porto, Portugal, 2015), “How to catch a fugitive? — Exhibition of conversable objects”, a performance at CAM – Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (Lisbon, Portugal, 2013) and “Impossible tasks (The Servant of the Cenacle)”, a performance at Palais de Tokyo (Paris, France, 2013).
