Portugal, 1949


Luisa Cunha was born in 1949 in Lisbon.

 At the basis of her work is a very clear and emotional notion of relativity of life itself, and consequently of conventions, of the meaningful difference between interior and exterior, of private and public, and of the fragmentary nature of the “non-place”, of power, of time and place dimensions, and that of the discourse.

This conviction has had its origin in a practice that the artist has developed from an early age, being trained in observing without any aim in mind, just by letting things enter, in a state of complete receptiveness, by imposing no frontiers, and no judgements (as much as possible). First finding things and then seeking them.
