Vasco Araújo “A Moment Apart” at MAAT, Lisbon

The exhibition A Moment Apart offers a cross-sectional perspective on Vasco Araújo’s work, based on the link established by the artist between the performability of voice and body, through specific devices combining different visual objects. In the work of Vasco Araújo, the voice appears as the space for building both individual and collective identities that create images to confront fiction and reality. On the other hand, the body projects this identity configuration and defines the way in which each human being relates to others and presents him or herself to the world, while at the same time seeing, building and letting him or herself be built by the Other.

This exhibition celebrates 20 years of Vasco Araújo’s artistic production and integrates MAAT’s programming given the relevance of his national and international career. Araújo was also one of the first winners of the EDP Foundation New Artists Award, in 2002, and is one of the artists represented in the Foundation’s collection. The exhibition will present artworks which have never been shown in Portugal before, as well as the artist’s first piece, a video entitled The Postman Always Rings Twice (1999-2000).
