Intro
I was born in Lisbon. I first came into contact with metals when I was very young, in the António Arroio secondary school in 1984. The school specializes in applied arts, and it changed my life. Later, between 1987 and 1991, I studied jewelry in Ar.Co, an independent art school in Lisbon, and found my personal way of expression. I founded the ZDB gallery, the first alternative gallery in Lisbon, in 1995. I worked for 10 years for a company making jewelry collections for museum shops. In 2004, I received a subsidy from the fine arts department of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation for my project with puppets entitled “Passage to the Other Side”. Between 2007 and 2012, I owned and managed Gallery ARTICULA, making and selling jewelry and objects. Now I have a new atelier in a truly central location in Lisbon, Largo de Camões. Now I’m teaching jewelry techniques in the school that I graduated from.

Statement

Teresa Milheiro’s Puppets
Teresa Milheiro, an internationally recognized and acclaimed artist belonging to a Third Generation of Contemporary Portuguese Jewelry, develops in her work a clearly conceptual approach which not only gives the jewel an unprecedented communicative significance but also expands it into unusual territories.

For Teresa Milheiro, a jewel is, as it always should be in a contemporary approach, a predominantly communicative vehicle, a privileged portrait of our time and of the world we live in, which the artist uses to develop her fascinating analytical comments on the daily reality that surrounds her/us.
In Teresa Milheiro’s jewels, we often find profound, at times finely ironic, reflections on Fashion or on Beauty, phenomena which today’s Media fuel exceedingly and which the jewel apparently supports, or, in a more profound dimension, wise reflections on the human condition itself, life or death.
Unleashing the jewel into new territories, Teresa Milheiro has already used sculpture in her work, creating sculpture-jewels that recall fantasy insects, and now she does it again with superior mastery.

Resorting to the totally universal masterpiece that makes up the trilogy of Autos das Barcas, which the immortal Gil Vicente bequeathed to us, Teresa Milheiro has transformed her jewels into fascinating puppets: Hell, Purgatory and Glory (or Heaven) are summoned here in a poignant portrayal of the Contemporary World and of our human and mortal condition.

The preciseness of
Jewelery combines with a meticulous narrative that, starting with our first great dramatist, dissects the reality of our time.
Do you remember the Alcoviteira (Procuress) of Auto da Barca do Inferno who brought with her Seiscentos virgos postiços / Duas arcas de feitiços (Six hundred fake hymens / Two trunks full of spells)?

She seems innocent compared to today’s Procuress who, reviewed by Teresa Milheiro, summons human trafficking networks or the corresponding octopus mafia with 
hypnotisy eyes, crafted in symbolic gold.

The crushing power of multinationals, greed, insane materialism, the emptiness of values, the duality of Good versus Evil inherent in human beings, Innocence, the global economic system, alienation, clerical hypocrisy (perhaps more alive today than it was in Gil Vicente’s time), racial and
civilazational hate, are other possible interpretations of these puppets of adults who are perpetually evolving on the World Stage. / Rui Afonso Santos



My work is usually inspired by my surroundings. Society, social values, politics, economics, wars and environmental concerns have a direct influence on the ironic form with which I approach these themes and develop them in my pieces. I consider my work to be intervention, normally a very strong political and social comment.
 
I do not always use the same method of work, I often create pieces influenced by certain objects that I encounter, but in other works I may diverge from an idea or concept to arrive at the form of a piece.
 
I do not like feeling trapped in rigid ways of working because that interferes with my inspiration.
 
A jewel to me is something that is spiritually valuable. The material value of the jewel has little meaning.
 
Generally, when I'm creating a form I don’t worry about the target audience, I simply have an intrinsic need to express this idea.
 
Jewellery for me represents a form of expression like any other, but with the difference that we carry it with us. That makes interaction with other people more visible – in fact, it can sometimes demand a great deal of courage to wear some pieces.
