Vasco Araújo : "Eco"
from 21 October 2008
until 04 January 2009
Jeu de Paume, Paris

Vasco Araújo (born Lisbon, 1975) — explores the identity and complexity of personality by means of disguise, narrative and language. The artist, who is also an opera singer, explores the social dimension of seduction and eroticism and their power games. Drawing frequently on literature ( Restif de la Bretonne, Shakespeare, etc.) and opera (Mozart, Puccini, Wagner), his work is above all a meditation on art as a critical reflection on society but also as a privilege locus for the relations between truth and artifice.
