Joana Vasconcelos was born in Paris, in 1971. She lives and works in Lisbon. She studied at Ar.Co – Centro de Arte e Comunicação Visual, in Lisbon. Public art interventions have been particularly prominent in her career. Since 1994, she exhibits regularly in Portugal and abroad, and the nature of her creative process rests upon appropriating, decontextualizing and subverting existing objects and everyday realities.
