PHILLIPS TO HOST AN EXHIBITION OF WORKS BY CELEBRATED ARTIST JOANA VASCONCELOS

About

Known for her sculptures and installations that explore collective identity and consumer culture, her works explores the banality of everyday objects to express often ironic themes and the politics of feminism.

Joana came to international prominence at the 51st Venice Biennale in 2005 with A Noiva (The Bride) (2001-2005), a striking, 5-metre tall chandelier sculpture made with wire, cotton thread and over 14,000 tampons. In 2012, following in the footsteps of Jeff Koons and Takashi Murakami, Vasconcelos hosted a solo exhibition at the Palace of Versailles, becoming the only female contemporary artist to do so.

The exhibition at Phillips features over 40 works of art representing various periods of Vasconcelos’ career and coincides with the publication of the artist’s monograph, published by Thames and Hudson. Also featured is new work from the artist’s current series, the Valkyries, which evokes feminine figures of Norse mythology who flew over battlefields to choose which of the slain warriors were worthy.
