Joana Vasconcelos

When we were in Lisbon, we went to see Joana Vasconcelos in her immense industrial space down by the docks:-



Over lunch, she mentioned that she was making preparations for showing in the Summer Exhibition.   She was invited to show work by Grayson Perry and her large floating fabric sculpture dominates the Octagon as one enters in a way that very much reflects the spirit of the exhibition as a whole:  freely creative, colourful and full of unexpected surprises:-

    I enjoyed her exhibition at Burlington Gardens (then, of course, Haunch of Venison), back in 2010. Always good to see textile art getting some attention.

    Best wishes,
