Manuel João Vieira (b.1962) was born and studied in Lisbon, the setting of his artistic activity marked by a critical aspect always associated with humor and a certain theatricality. One of the creators of the 80s group Homeostético (along with Pedro Proença, Xana, Pedro Portugal, Fernando Brito and Ivo Pereira da Silva) who defended an art of intervention, valuing a critical and humor. Taking inspiration from the well-known book by the Italian writer Ítalo Calvino, which gives the title is composition, an allegory about good and evil, theartistcreates a theater of strange dreamlike fantasies, with fable characters, animated by an atmosphere of This is a disturbing disturbance, paradoxes and fears that are at the same time very characteristic of contemporary sensibility. Statism and dizzying movement, suspended or composite figures, between history and myth, majestic and ambiguous architectures animated by Kabbalistic writings, a haunting tornado threatening the innermost oceans. Images and symbols of the fundamental ambivalence between dream and reality, death and life, good and evil.
