Claire Gonçalves: Thank you and goodbye

Welcome to THANK YOU AND GOODBYE, Sunday October 30 at 13—15. For the past two months, Claire Gonçalves has been in residency here in Reykjavík through a cross-residency program, during which she’s met with various artists. For each visit she’s created a painting, a farewell present to the people she’s met. The paintings will be handed over to their owners on Sunday and the artist will be present for a conversation about her work and stay here in Iceland. 

Claire Gonçalves is a visual artist based in Clermont Ferrand, France. She works mainly with sculpture, creating a composition in space where craft, tools and motion play an important role. Through her work she observes, dissects and dismantles. Claire Gonçalves was selected for the cross-residency 2022 in Reykjavík, offered by Artistes en résidence, The Living Art Museum, The French Embassy in Iceland, Alliance Francaise and The Association of Icelandic Visual Artists. During her residency, she hoped to enrich her formal and practical vocabulary in relation to artistic methods, and discover new modes of working.
