Against the Enamel
10 October – 2 November 2014

Priscila Fernandes develops her works from an interest into didactics, education and the conveyance of knowledge.In Against the Enamel Fernandes presents an installation incorporating video and sculpture. As in other currents works, Fernandes creates references to Neo-Impressionism and ideological shifts at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. The large LED video screen hanging from the ceiling, with its movement and multi-colours generating a veritable maelstrom, creates ‒ in interplay with the rough cast iron sculptures placed on the floor ‒ associations with advancing industrialisation and a changing social structure, the idea of productivity, scientific progress, the masses’ longing for entertainment and also for anarchic utopias.Priscila Fernandes (*1981) is grantee of the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, Lisbon.
As a work for her current exhibition in Espai 13 at the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona, she has recently published her book ¿Y el Arte? The Book of Aesthetic Education of the Modern School.
