Nuno Vicente (Chartres, France, 1981).
“(…) It is simple images that Nuno Vicente is looking for in order to ask complex, comprehensive questions of existence. Often he uses equally simple materials such as clay, stone or water, but also performative approaches, which he places in a metaphorical context. Influenced by Arte Povera, Conceptual Art and even Joseph Beuys, it is not the final work that is important to the artist. Rather, his works are created only through the process of thinking and experience of the viewer. Playing with the processuality – with the fragility and volatility of elementary substances is combined in his works quite naturally with a sensual presence and poetic aura of the materials involved.”
