ADD FUEL is the work of Portuguese artist Diogo Machado.



Djerba, Tunisia
Curated by Galerie Itinerrance

The Djerbahood project transformed the village of Erriadh, on the Tunisian island of Djerba, into an open air museum with the contribution of around 150 artists from 30 countries. Being able to come into contact with Tunisia's rich cultural tradition of ceramics made working on this project one of the most enjoyable experiences I've ever lived as an artist. Especially when considering that the geometric and organic elements present in Tunisian and North-African ceramics have been a major influence in Portuguese tile culture over the centuries.
