About Joana Vasconcelos

View Profile »

Joana Vasconcelos (Portuguese, b. 1971) creates sculptures and installations that explore constructions of femininity. Inspired by French Nouveau Realisme and Pop, she often appropriates quotidian materials, ironically recontextualizing them. In her celebrated 2001 sculpture “The Bride,” for instance, she replicates an ornate 18th century candelabra with store-bought tampons. Among the most widely recognized contemporary Portuguese artists, Vasconcelos’s work was exhibited at the Portuguese Pavilion at the 2013 Venice Biennale and at the Palazzo Grassi at the 2011 Venice Biennale. She has also had solo exhibitions at the Château de Versailles, the Manchester Art Gallery, the Tel Aviv Museum of Modern Art, and the Museu Coleção.
