The Truth of Matter: Solange Pessoa's Cathedral


de Oliveira, Eduardo Jorge (2020). The Truth of Matter: Solange Pessoa's Cathedral. In: Bacon, Alex. Solange Pessoa. New York / Rio de Janeiro: Circle Books, 358-371.

Abstract

The first English-language monograph on seminal Brazilian artist Solange Pessoa (born 1961), this substantial volume is also the artist’s most comprehensive to date. Pessoa’s sculptural work, which often mobilizes materials like human hair, leather, wax and animal blood, evokes issues related to human and animal bodies, vacillates between beauty and abjection and forges formal connections between indigenous Brazilian traditions and international postminimal art.

Surveying work from throughout Pessoa’s career, from her beginnings in the late 1980s through to the present, with selections from the artist’s sketchbooks and archives, this volume argues for Pessoa’s unique contribution to Brazilian art. Including texts by international scholars Cecilia Fajardo-Hill, Eduardo Jorge de Oliveira and Alex Bacon, as well as an interview with Pessoa by Liz Munsell, Solange Pessoa introduces English-language readers to the artist’s compelling body of work from the past three decades.
