The EDP Foundation is proud to announce a new solo show by Portuguese urban artist Alexandre Farto AKA Vhils at the Electricity Museum in Lisbon, Portugal.
Dissection is the first solo exhibition by Vhils in a Portuguese mainstream art institution and his largest to date. This ambitious show will feature a new body of work conceived specifically for the museum’s space.
Aiming to be an in-depth reflection on the urban space and its interrelationship with its inhabitants, Dissection takes as starting point various elements intrinsic to it. The artist’s intention is to estab- lish a progressive path through several purposefully built interconnected environments which enables the viewer to experience the passage from a dimension of noise, chaos and visual satura- tion – expressing life in contemporary cities – to a neutral setting where he intends to conduct a methodical dissection of familiar urban components with recourse to the unconventional media and destructive techniques which he has been exploring in his work.
The Show will be opening on July 4th @ Edp Foundation Avenida de Brasília, Central Tejo 1300-598 Lisbon – Portugal
