Juliao Sarmento: Echo
by Eva Meyer-Hermann
Publisher's Description
Ever since his participation in the 1982 Documenta, the artistic position of Julião Sarmento has been discussed in the context of Neo-Expressionism and Trans-avantguardia. A closer look at his work, however, reveals a different development of themes and narrative elements from his filmic and photographic work of the 70s. While the parallel use of divergent techniques and media is not an end in itself, it can serve to visualize the insoluble poles of the sensuous and the conceptual as they appear in an individual work. Echo, published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven, provides a survey of the most important aspects of Sarmento's work over the last 30 years, including works of photography, film, painting, and sculpture.
