Metonymy Garden

 collaboration with Ana Brotas – 2020 – 2021

Metonymy Garden is a project by Ana Brotas and Viviana Cárdenas that started in 2019 while undertaking the MFA in Art and Public Space at Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo. Coming from different contexts, respectively Portugal and Colombia, our interest in researching storytelling and intangible heritage as a public space became the meeting point for our practices.

We approach landscapes, nature and its associated stories as our study subject, exploring how fictions have the capacity to disrupt modes of observation. Our artworks materialize as text, photography, video, drawing, socially engaged projects, installation, and performance.
