About Joana Alarcão
Complementary to her studio practice she founded the online platform Insights of an Eco Artist and has worked with magazines such as Women to Women, Public Offerings Ltd, Gatekeeper, and the NGO Arts Help.
Creating sculptures, charcoal drawings, performances, and writings influenced by environmental practices, she explores human cognitive behaviours and climate change from multiple lenses. Bringing awareness to the impact of environmental change in the social sphere and how climate justice interconnects with social justice.
The contrasts of how nature is consecutively part of the human species and human reaction toward it led her sculptures and drawings to be mostly human referenced and made with naturally made materials. The friction behind these two arguments is a major aspect of her practice.
