André Romão: Fauna
Hatje Cantz, 2019
Portuguese artist André Romão has developed his practice over the past years to include a diversity of media, from poetry and sculpture to installations and video works. His work explores notions of violence, resistance, and eroticism, having the human body and its often problematic interaction with historical, environmental, and economical macrostructures at its core. Romão draws on a broad range of references, from classical antiquity to Surrealism, from modern literature to the Baroque. The richly illustrated catalogue accompanies Romão’s solo exhibition at Museu Coleção Berardo, in Lisbon, and includes an in-depth essay on the artist’s work by the curator, Pedro Lapa.
