1972 - Brussels

Noé Sendas

Noé Sendas, Brussels, 1972 lives and works in Madrid and in Berlin, where he and five other artists founded the artist-run space Invaliden1.
Sendas’s double interest in the printed and the moving image leads him to choose photography and video as critical media for building and documenting a journey that also incorporates drawing, collage, sculpture and installation. By manipulating the image, Noé Sendas questions notions of identity and authorship, attributing other meanings to pre-existing works.

In turning to photography as a field for experimenting with the metamorphoses of images, the artist recovers surrealist techniques (collage, superimposition) and updates them with digital technologies, allowing some of their aspects to be removed and remade. On the other hand, he manipulates the printing method as if he were producing photographs from that era, raising doubts about time and authorship, a strategy especially visible in the series Crystal Girls (since 2009). By transforming collected and serialised images, Noé Sendas creates galleries of ambiguous portraits that can be read as reproductions of works of art from museums, self-portraits of the artist or reflections of the spectator.
