João Silverio, Jean Wainwright, Stephan Klee


A comprehensive edition of the artist’s work of the last ten years, with a special focus on the assemblage works namely the Crystal Girls series.

The essay by João Silverio will have as its guiding line the Lisbon studio where the artist has been working for more than twenty years, with a biographical preamble.

Noé Sendas was born in Brussels, 1972, lives and works in Berlin, Madrid and Lisbon. Sendas began presenting his work in the late Nineties. Explicit and implicit references to artists and literary, cinematic or musical creations are part of his raw materials. Specific concerns about the reflection and practise of visual arts can also be added to his repertoire. These include: the body, as an entity that is simultaneously theoretical and material; the observer’s perception mechanisms; or the discursive potential of exhibition methods. His notable Crystal Girls deconstructs film stills from Hollywood golden age, eliminating faces, limbs and settings, creating enigmatic sophisticated still lives.His work is represented in many public and private collections in North and South America and Europe.
