In this photo performance series I invite the 9 artists with whom I share an art studio in Lisbon to find a niche in the space where their ‘beast’ feels most ‘at home’. Looking for familiarity within strangeness and strangeness within familiarity, together we explore their physicality in relationship to this chosen architectural landscape. Each beast is given a unique skin texture by visual artist Martha Angelozzi and photographed in situ by Angela Alegria (both also artists of RA, included as beasts in the series).
