‘I’m Your Mirror’ will show a large number of sculptures and installations, such as ‘Lilicoptère, 2012’, a gold-plated helicopter decorated with Swarovski crystals and pink ostrich feathers, and ‘A Noiva, 2001 - 2005’ (The Bride), a six-metre high chandelier made of 14,000 tampons. In her work, Vasconcelos is searching for different identities – including those of modern-day women – and the discord that can be found within them. In doing so she is inspired by the traditional crafts of her native country. The result is a seductive, funny, exuberant and sometimes absurdist exhibition in which nothing is ever as it seems.
The exhibition is organised by the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, in collaboration with the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art and Kunsthal Rotterdam.
