Agência para o Investimento e Comércio Externo de Portugal


From Saturday 20 July the Kunsthal Rotterdam will present an impressive retrospective exhibition featuring the work of the famous Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos.

‘I’m Your Mirror’ will show more than thirty of her iconic sculptures and installations from 1997 to the present, including ‘Lilicoptère (2012)’, the gold-plated helicopter decorated with Swarovski crystals and ostrich feathers that she made for her solo exhibition at the Palace of Versailles.


In an activist and feminist way, and with a profound respect for Portuguese culture and traditions, Vasconcelos gives reality her own personal twist.


The result is a seductive, funny, exuberant and sometimes absurdist exhibition in which nothing is what it seems.


The Kunsthal is delighted to present this special exhibition, organised by the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, Spain, in collaboration with the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, Portugal, and Kunsthal Rotterdam - a first for The Netherlands.
