Henrique Pavão
Visual Artist
Lisbon, Portugal
Henrique Pavão (Lisbon, 1991) lives and works in Lisbon. His work focuses on issues of entropy, loss, anachronism, story-telling and temporality, reflecting an interest and use of the archaeology of conceptual movements, connected to a sophisticated, poetical and cinematic use of processes. His work circles through different media (sculpture, film / video, photography, sound and performance) often with a concern for each medium’s specific pro- cesses and mechanisms, taken as the mark of its temporality or even its history. Pavão obtained his Masters in Fine Arts from the Malmö Art Academy in 2016 (Professor Joachim Koester). He received grants from FLAD – Luso - American Development Foundation (2022), The Marcelino Botín Foundation (2021), Royal Academy of Arts Stockholm (2016), and Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (2015). In 2016, he was awarded the Edstrandska Stiftelsens Prize and shortlisted for the Novo Banco Revelação Award from the Serralves Foundation. In 2019, Pavão was shortlisted for the 13th edition of the EDP Foundation’s New Artists Award. His work has been recently exhibited at Kindred Spirit (Lisbon), FRAME Section of Frieze NY (NY), Bruno Múrias Gallery (Lisbon), Atelier Museu Júlio Pomar (Lisbon), MAAT – The Museum of Art Architecture and Technology (Lisbon), CAV – Centro de Artes Visuais (Coimbra), Galeria Municipal do Porto (Oporto), SE8 Gallery (London), Anozero (Coimbra Biennial), Culturgest Porto (Oporto), Appleton Square (Lisbon), KHM Gallery (Malmö), The Royal Academy of Arts (Stockholm), among others.
