Helena Almeida : Inside Me

3 Oct 2009–15 Nov 2009


Almeida's work includes photography, performance and drawing. Although the artist is always in front of the camera, she insists that her images are not self-portraits. Dressed in black since the early 1970's, sometimes with objects or furniture found in her studio, she assumes positions that she has painstakingly choreographed in order to create complex visual compositions that are as much about space and line as the relationship between the artist and the image. Sometimes she further complicates these compositions by painting directly onto the photographs in bold primary blue or red.
