Angélica Teuta is currently an Open Plan artist-in-residence on Pelican Estate, bringing her collaborative practice from Columbia to Peckham for a summer of activities for local children and families on the Pelican Playground. Read more here.

Sunday Spot is an ongoing series of free, drop-in family activities which takes place every Sunday from 2-4pm, suitable for children aged 3-12 years. All sessions are inclusive, for more information on access to the gallery please read here.

BIOGRAPHY

Angelica Teuta is a Columbian artist whose collaborative practice reflects upon time, space and how teaching affects our understating of these realities. She gives form to her ideas through creating installations featuring recycled materials, sound and projection. Often these site-specific configurations are constructed collaboratively with the different communities that she works with in Columbia and elsewhere. Her large-scale installations have been presented internationally and reviewed in numerous publications including Art Forum and Artnexus.

Teuta completed a Masters in Visual Arts at Columbia University, New York, in 2015. She has participated in several artist residencies including the Sommerakademie in Zentrum Paul Klee with guest curator Thomas Hirschhorn in Bern (Switzerland) and AZ West lead by Andrea Zittel and James Trainor.
