Joana Vasconcelos : material world by Enrique Juncosa( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joana Vasconcelos has become one the most respected and sought-after artists of the 21st century. Her forte is using non-traditional materials, and particularly textiles, to create monumental and expansive works that intrigue, inspire and entertain the viewer. She first rose to acclaim when her chandelier decorated with tampons was exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 2005, and has since had solo exhibitions at Versailles and Manchester Art Gallery. She aims to re-present and subvert every-day objects, often manipulating scale and form, and is specially interested in the role of women and objects associated with them. This book focuses on her extraordinary works in textiles, and highlights in particular her Valkyries series, vibrant patchwork extravaganzas that weave together knitting and crochet with silk, velvets, recycled clothes and industrially produced textiles embellished with Portuguese tassels, crystals and beads. Essays by Enrique Juncosa and Crispin Sartwell offer thoughtful and in-depth overviews of her work and its development over the past fourteen years

"Often witty and provocative work, which mainly consists of very large-scale sculptures that on closer inspection are made up of familiar objects. They also utilise a degree of handicraft, such as meticulously and ingeniously engineered crochet or knitting."--Site web de la galerie d'art

Garden of Eden #2 : 6 de novembre de 2009 - 7 de febrer de 2010 : Aljub. Es Baluard by Joana Vasconcelos( Book )

La muestra, una obra creada específicamente para este espacio histórico, se presenta como el "negativo" de la idea clásica de jardín. La artificialidad de las flores, su atractivo lumínico al ser mostradas en espacios interiores oscuros y la necesidad de una alimentación eléctrica, transportan al espectador hacia una sensación ilusoria enfatizada por el movimiento y el ruido de los motores que, sin embargo, logra el mismo nivel de seducción que un jardín natural a pleno sol y en estado de máxima belleza. La artista, consciente de que el jardín es una construcción humana, una manipulación de la naturaleza para un sueño o el disfrute individual o colectivo, ha construido un jardín como una gran ironía. La artista se apropia de objetos vulgares para convertirlos en extraordinarios, de las cosas que habitan la cotidianeidad para conducirlas a un mundo mágico capaz de generar ilusiones y crear sueños, y de aquello que es banal para conferirle una trascendencia en el ámbito de la expresión artística conceptual y también objetual
