Sonia Gomes, nominated for PIPA Prize 2012 and 2016, is one of the artists to participate of “Revival”, group show at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, on view until September 10th. The exhibition presents contemporary women sculptors and photo-based artists that use of scale and technique for expressive effect, as to reanimate deep-rooted emotions related to the human experience.
The works showcased addresses questions as memory and emotions. Through allusive depictions of human and other animal bodies, each artist in “Revival” connects to the unconscious. Video projections, large-scale photographs, and hanging sculptures create immersive, mesmeric environments. Sonia Gomes, for example, presents four sculptures from her series “Torção” through which she explores issues of identity and memory.
