JOSE DAMASCENO. Ridinghouse, London, 2015. Published in association with Editora Cobogo, Rio de Janeiro. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 192 pp. with 199 ills. (168 col.). 29 x 23 cm. ISBN 9781905464876 In English.
Publisher's description: Exploring scale and perception, Brazilian artist Jose Damasceno's imaginative and surreal approach to sculpture is catalogued in this comprehensive, first-time monograph. The artist is best known for large-scale sculptures and installations that deconstruct and transform common objects-from pencils and cigarettes to hammers and strings-into the unfamiliar. Damasceno's practice is preoccupied with the idea of morphing and transition, moving from one medium to another to form a layered process that tests the relationship between networks and diagrams to surprise and disorientate the viewer. From a solo show at the MCA Chicago to representing Brazil at the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007, Damasceno has crossed multiple boarders, firmly established in the contemporary art world. This in-depth survey features some 200 color illustrations, with texts by Aurora Garcia and Jose Thomaz Brum, plus an interview between the artist and Tate Modern curator Ann Gallagher.
