About

 

STATEMENT

Nuno Carvalho (1978) is a multidisciplinary artist of Portuguese origin who lives and works in Barcelona. Public space, objects, actions, time, and its body are the main elements in its pieces. It merges the different disciplines and artistic languages with freedom within a single piece using the immediacy of the snapshot and the live-action to create situations that pose philosophical questions and poetic experiences on the subtle contradictions of the contemporary reality that often become in a critic Comic and absurd of the most immediate reality.
