  • About the Artist

Noé Sendas (born in Brussels, 1972, lives and works in Berlin) began presenting his work in the late nineties. He 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. As a result the Berlin-based Belgian artist's work is weirdly unsettling. Rooted in cinematic and literary references, his images depict ghostly, unnerving figures whose heads and limbs appear to be invisible, or which have seemingly blended into furniture or walls. It is a fascinating body of work, that follows themes of abstracting and partly erasing the human body through photography explored by those ever-present titans, John Baldessari and Guy Bourdin, and the less well-known but equally brilliant American sculptor Robert Gober. It is also something of a counterpoint to the contemporary subversion of John Stezaker's collaged appropriation of Hollywood head shots, whose results are very different but who delights in defacing once-great screen idols.
