Hear me

September 21, 2018

“My work is my body, my body is my work,” said the Portuguese painter, photographer and performance artist, Helena Almeida. But even though the artist’s body –– her hands, her feet, her legs, and her shadow –– appears throughout her work, she refuses to see what she does as self portraiture. “I wasn’t going to hire a model when I myself was in the studio… I know what positions I need to place myself in, which postures I should assume and how to understand the settings… But it’s not me. It’s as though I were another person.”
