Julião Sarmiento: Short distances

Short Distances is both an exhibition and an editorial project by British writer Adrian Searle about the Portuguese artist Julião Sarmento. Artists, it is often said, always do the same thing, no matter how different their works may seem, and even when they change from one medium to another, or seem to change direction or develop in unexpected ways. This is not necessarily a limitation, but rather a sign of obsession, even if one cannot always tell precisely what that obsession is. Artists, like thinkers, are always thinking about the same thing, even when they themselves don't know exactly what it is. In the words of Adrian Searle “Sarmento's work has a particular tone, a timbre, a calculated distance, a certain coldness, while his subject matter is the opposite, volatile, 'hot' and unstable. [...] He talks about sex, violence, the repressed, the excessive and the deliberately - provocatively - inexplicable". This exquisitely conceived and designed book covers the most important methods that the artist uses to create his works: painting, sculpture, installation, performance and cinema.
