Noé Sendas (born in Brussels, 1972, lives and works in Berlin) began presenting his work in the late nineties. Sendas resorts to different means of expression: video, sculpture, collage, drawing and photography. Explicit and implicit references to artists and literary, cinematic, or musical creations are part of his raw materials. Specific concerns about the reflection and practice of visual arts can also be added to his repertoire. These include: the body, as an entity that is simultaneously theoretical and material; the observer’s perception mechanisms; or the discursive potential of exhibition methods.
Sendas has studied in: School of the Art Institute of Chicago, USA; Royal College of Arts, London; Arco and Atelier Livre, Lisbon. He has attended residencies at the: Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin; Casa Velazquez, Madrid; Cite des Arts, Paris; Peggy Guggenheim, Venice and Atelier Real Lisboa. He has exhibited works in: Yerba Buena for the Arts, USA; Kunsthalle Bonn, Germany; Akademie der Kunst, Berlin; Le Plateau, Paris; MEAC/ MUSAC/ Botin Foundation/ Foundation IC and Casa America in Spain; In Portuguese Museums and Institutions such as: Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Museum Berardo, Museu Bordalo Pinheiro e Museu da Cidade em Lisboa; Culturgest, Porto; CAVE, Coimbra; Museum de Tavira, Algarve.
