Collection of Artists is the third move of Raquel André's Collection of People.
In the Collection of Lovers, Raquel uses photography, in the Collectors she uses video, in this new move she proposes to use her own body as an archive.
Collection of Artists is a collection that deals with each artist, their practices and work tools, as well as their thoughts and biographies. When collecting artists, Raquel navigates reality and fiction, fantasy and impossibility, daily and artistic life, seeking to collect the ephemeral, and transform it into something concrete and possible, through an artistic and poetic approach.
Until September 2019, Raquel collected artists in Bergen, Faro, Warsaw, Salzburg, Cincinnati, New York, Loulé, Berlin, Orléans, Lisbon and Porto.
