Jose Pedro Cortes - COSTA (Signed)
This product is currently sold out.
In COSTA, we wander through this territory: shacks, outmoded architecture, remains of houses, dirt left by the tide; an agglomeration of sand, vegetation and streets - a peripheral, end-of-the-line location. We are flooded by a strange luminosity; a dazzling and mysterious light which imbues these spaces with a disconcerting and unreal atmosphere, like something seen while in a hypnotic state, encouraging the spectator to participate in a suggestive and paradoxical exploration of individual experience. 'Costa by Joseacute; Pedro Cortes is a book of bleak costal landscapes based around Costa da Caparica, a town south of Lisbon. It's a book of such barren sand, worn interiors and low grade vegetation, that it makes a day trip Weston-Super-Mare in February in the rain look like a right, rare old treat.' Colin Pantall
