Portuguese artist Andre Romao 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. Romao draws on a broad range of references, from classical antiquity to Surrealism, from modern literature to the Baroque. The richly illustrated catalogue accompanies Romao's solo exhibition at Museu Colecao Berardo, in Lisbon, and includes an in-depth essay on the artist's work by the curator, Pedro Lapa.
