Lisbon, Portugal, 1977
Presented by CARLOS CARVALHO ARTE CONTEMPORÂNEA
Susana Gaudêncio’s work is usually involved in a research based practice and a combined media approach, such as drawings, video-animations, printmaking, books or publications presented in an installation context. She often creates intricate drawings, photo-montages and animations, made by altering found footage and imagery. Her projects elaborate on the relationship between the historical legacy of concepts such as: the utopian impulse, utopia, dystopia, heterotopia, strangeness, nomadism, and artistic production as a platform to find new possibilities for questioning utopia, as a critical device eminently political.
