João Pedro Vale e Nuno Alexandre Ferreira

João Pedro Vale e Nuno Alexandre Ferreira


João Pedro Vale
 (Lisbon, 1976), graduated in Sculpture from Faculdade de Belas-Artes de Lisboa and he also studied at Escola Maumaus. Nuno Alexandre Ferreira (Torres Vedras, 1973), studied Sociology at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa. They have been working together since 2004, in several projects that range from sculpture to photography, to production of shows and theatre, performances and videos.

In their practice, they recreate objects, symbols and sayings related to traditional and popular views of History. These new shapes are reinvented through a radical change on materials, contexts and connotations, that create a dichotomy between poor materials and rich effects, echoing the luxury and the kitsch. There’s a big resource of modest materials that sabotage the distinction of erudite and vernacular and place sexual references on unconventional supplies that appeal to all senses.

 

Their works are featured in private and public collections such as Tate (London), Serralves Foundation (Porto), Museu do Chiado (Lisbon), Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (Lisbon), Navacerrada Collection (Madrid).
