THE ARTS

Art is a theme that we care very much, so we want to link República to potential and talented local artists. On the walls of each room - and each one is associated to a typical Lisbon neighborhood - are exhibited the works of the artist we challenged for. The same works that decorate the rooms are available for sale on site.

CHIADO • ARTIST: KATIE LAGAST

A Belgian artist who lives and works between Lisbon and Antwerp. Her work has been exhibited in several art galleries and collective exhibitions in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, France and Portugal. With her installations, sculptures and graphic works, Katie calls up a world of her own that challenges the viewer to not take anything for granted. Intuitive drawing from a rather desolate urban environment, she reserves slices of space and time that no other people cares to notice. Her inspiration could be right here on the ground: cigarette butts, racks, weeds, the pavement, the street of cobblestone and the light later in the afternoon. Casual as her subjects may appear, through formal analysis and admirable eye for detail, Katie Lagast transforms this items into objects of beauty and contemplation.
