Miguel Palma (Lisbon, 1964) lives and works in Lisbon. He exhibits regularly since the late 1980s. His artistic career, of sculptural background, is marked by installations produced in a non-traditional way. He collaborates frequently with teams of engineers, mechanics, carpenters and biologists, among other specialists. His work has a hybrid character, linked to the industrial production of the twentieth century.
Palma’s work often addresses how technology has influenced modern man’s life, its relation to the environment, the idea of human comfort or the idea of power. Simultaneously to the construction of installations, of great and average scale, he frequently uses drawing, video, performance, construction of miniatures of its projects and of books of artist.
Miguel Palma has been participating regularly in residencies in different artistic spaces since 2007, such as: Location One(EUA), International Studio & Curatorial Program (EUA), Headlands Center for the Arts (EUA), Montalvo Arts Center (EUA), Arizona State University Art Museum (EUA), voyons voir | art contemporain et territoire (França), Association Château de Servières (França), 18th Street Arts Center (EUA) among others.
