Author of a key oeuvre in the context of recent Portuguese art, his videos and installations mark a territory in which humour and cruelty intersect in the disruption of children’s narratives or in the construction of strange universes, where visual seduction is imploded by meticulously manipulated deviations of meaning. [...] the works proposed by Francisco Queirós conjure up a sensory and perceptual universe that is induced by a post-reflexive relationship with everything that the author has seen, heard and experienced during his visits.
Marta Moreira de Almeida
Francisco Queirós was born in Lisbon in 1972. He lives and works in Lisbon.
