About

The practice of f.marquespenteado is supported by a very well defined method that involves long processes and specific techniques that are tenaciously operated. Under the alias of gender, which naturally brings to the fore false assumptions based on rooted prejudice, the artist has a work trajectory specially marked by embroidery, which ends up linking clothing accessories, books and found objects. And for an aesthetic choice, it combines autobiographical and historical matter in the link of inventive literary creations.

Starting with in-depth research on the contribution of the textile universe to visual culture and the diffusion of knowledge, the artist elaborates narratives permeated by his own personal vocabulary, whose profoundness is articulated by playful undertones that constantly negotiate the meaning of things. In representations sewn by f.marquespeteado, we are faced with common human relations and historical and semantic displacements. It is within these that topics such as sexuality, homoeroticism, gender and violence are considered from a perspective that articulates, in a very particular way, social critiques from domestic environments.

f.marquespenteado (1955, São Paulo) lives and works in Brussels, Belgium.
Selected solo exhibitions include Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?, Freedman Fitzpatrick, Los Angeles (2017); Unknown Subjects Among Solitaires, Galeria Múrias Centeno, Lisbon (2016); Sentido Figurado, A CASA, Museu do Objeto Brasileiro, São Paulo (2014).
His work was most recently included in Lyric on Battlefield, Gladstone Gallery, New York (2017); Odd Objects: an on proto-sculpture, Centro Internacional das Artes José de Guimarães, Guimarães, (2016); Unorthodox, Jewish Museum, New York (2015); 30a. Bienal de São Paulo, São Paulo (2012).
