Carlos Nogueira (1947, Mozambique) lives and works in Lisbon. His practice is marked by the incessant investigation on the relations between sculpture and architecture, time and light, space and body, word and image. The theme of the house is present throughout all of Carlos Nogueira’s work, manifesting itself lyrically through the titles or the materials meticulously chosen by the artist – iron, wood, concrete, glass, whitewash and charcoal. Nogueira studied Sculpture at Escola Superior de Belas-Artes, Porto and painting studies at Escola Superior de Belas-Artes, Lisbon. Fellow of Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (1982-1983), of the Secretary of State for Culture (1989-1990) and the Luso-American Development Foundation (1989). The artist took part in the Portuguese representation at the Venice Bienniale (1986) and the Milan Architecture Triennale (1996). Camões Prize at 2nd International Art Biennale of Vila Nova de Cerveira (1980) and Honourable Mention at the International Bienniale of Sculpture and Drawing of Caldas da Rainha (1995).
