Artist's residence

The Fazenda Catuçaba and the Pousada Picinguaba have established art and creation as one of its basic principles. We continuously receive in residence in one of our farm houses, for long or short residences, artists from all over the world who can come here to create in peace, and in exchange grant us some of their work.

We are proud to have received so far in Art Residence:

  • Joseph Keller, photographer, (July 2010) American from New York, responsible for beautiful early nature pictures of the surroundings.
  • Joern Blohm, photographer (August 2010), from Germany, who is responsible for a lot of the early interior pictures.
  • Pasha Radetzki aka Pasha Ra, performance and sculptor artist, (November 2010-March 2011), is from Belarus but has been living in New-York for 10 years. He spent 4 months at the Fazenda creating a unique landscape installation over 100 hectares in the hills. “Portal do Sul” is a public art halfway between architectural and sculptural work comprises of 10 related structures installed over 100 hectares of mountainous terrain in Pinga Rio Valley in the vicinity of Sao Luiz do Paraitinga, at an elevation between 1200 and 1350 meters above sea level. It is an environmentally-minded "chainsaw project" to reclaim / recycle cut timber as its base material."
  • Fernanda Preto and Bruno Jorge, photographers and cineaste, (April - August 2011) are documenting the specific local culture of our Fazenda and of the village of Catuçaba, in pictures and films.
