“Exploring scale and perception, José Damasceno’s imaginative and surreal approach to sculpture is catalogued in this comprehensive monograph”

José Damasceno’s large-scale sculptures and installations deconstruct and transform common objects – from pencils and cigarettes to hammers and strings – into unfamiliar constructions.Drawing upon the likes of Jean (Hans) Arp and Max Ernst, Damasceno’s work is preoccupied with transformation, moving from one medium to another to form a layered process that surprises and disorientates the viewer.

Having represented Brazil at the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007, Damasceno’s body of work is catalogued in full for the first time here and features over 200 colour illustrations. Texts included by writer Aurora García, José Thomaz Brum, professor at Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro and an interview with the artist by Ann Gallagher, curator at Tate, London.
