Okay, I’m officially obsessed. I tried to pick just one of these pieces to showcase, but how could I not show you the giant mirror mask, the Marilyn shoes made out of pot and pans {that’s the artist, for scale!}, and a fabulous, feathery, burlesque-looking “Lilicoptère” exhibited at Versailles?! These beauties are just the tip of the absolutely gorgeous iceberg that is the portfolio of Lisbon based artist Joana Vasconcelos… and clearly, the art world agrees. Here’s a tiny snippet from her CV. Look at this badass list:

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

Her work became known internationally after her participation in the 51st Venice Biennale in 2005, with the work A Noiva [The Bride] (2001-05). She was the first woman and the youngest artist to exhibit at the Palace of Versailles, in 2012. Recent highlights of her career include a solo exhibition at Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, the project Trafaria Praia, for the Pavilion of Portugal at the 55th Venice Biennale; the participation in the group exhibition The World Belongs to You at the Palazzo Grassi/François Pinault Foundation, Venice (2011); and her first retrospective, held at the Museu Coleção Berardo, Lisbon (2010).
