Jorge dos Santos
Though Jorge dos Santos was born in the Algarve, he grew up in the city of Liege, in Belgium, only coming back to Portugal as na adult.
Entitled “Portugal Nostalgia”, his exhibition explores a poetic inventory of the current scars he bears, providing an insight into memories of his childhood and the ideas he can recall from the time. The artist focuses on new times marked by the presence of digital means while remaining in tune with artistic creation. He provides a view of creation as deformation, or even the positive or negative sublimation of any element - a way of covering reality rather than changing it. Here, creation appears to be a game in which previously conceived ideas are left behind, and works of art take shape, becoming physical matter.
