Julião Sarmento – Parousia
at the Cooperativa Árvore, Porto, Portugal
through November 30, 2013
in conjunction with the Prémio de Artes Casino da Póvoa
Parousia features an important group of rarely exhibited Sarmento pieces from the late 1970s. Though these works are pivotal in the artist’s oeuvre, they have seldom been seen in public due to damage sustained during a fire in August of 1981 at Galeria Nacional de Belém, where some of these pieces were stored. Under the supervision of the artist, three of these works were reconstructed for the exhibition. The fully-illustrated catalogue accompanying Parousia contains an introductory text by Bruno Marchand as well as an interview with the artist.
