Year of experience
Noronha Feio’s artistic practice spans across a range of different mediums from painting and drawing to textile, animation and sound installations. For Noronha Feio rugs are above all objects of the everyday, livable places where both rompy child-making and daily prayers are held. They are democratic both in production as well as in their objective, being at the same time an expression of bourgeois wealth and taste. As well as holding a strong presence in the households of different classes for both decorative and practical reasons. They are parasitical objects that introduce messages, stories and histories into a household. Like the sun, they are present but not always noticed, beautiful but sometimes kitsch, even under-appreciated.
