Item description for Julião Sarmento by Juliao Sarmento & Louise Neri...
One of the European artists who has best combined text, image, and movement, Juli-o Sarmento's multidisciplinary oeuvre evinces the tension that exists between image and word, between what is explicitly biographical and the impossibility of all forms of narration. Over the past 26 years, Sarmento's work has revealed an intimate and passionate pre-occupation with desire, explored both in the realm of the speculative and the gestural. Within his work there is no chronology, no unfolding narrative, no apparent logic--simply glimpses of experience that give visual form to primordial desires, ones felt but not defined. Working with various media, including paint, print, photography, sculpture, and video, he determines to define the intangible gap between experience and memory, now and then.
