Joana Vasconcelos was born in Paris in 1971. Lives and works in Lisbon. She has exhibited regularly since the mid-1990s. After her participation in the 51st International Art Exhibition - la Biennale di Venezia in 2005, her work became known internationally. Her art form amazes people, despite adopting what is considered a humble woman’s craft, such as knitting and crochet. Her installations are not the result of heroic gestures but the result of the patient work of everyday women who collaborate with her in the weaving, day after day, of prodigies.
