Born in 1971 in Lisbon (PT)
Lives and works in Lisbon (PT)

Rui Calçada Bastos develops a very diverse practice in which absence, displacement, communication and selfknowledge are key elements. Inspired by the cities that he traveled to or lived in, he focuses on urban landscapes, objects, shapes and situations that would perhaps be overlooked at first glance. He reveals the poetic and narrative potential of forgotten details, imperfections and evidence of human disturbances. In a real and metaphorical sense, the reflections, duplications and confrontations constitute variations on a leitmotiv that runs through the artist’s videos, photographs and installations. He confronts the viewer with a self-referential view dealing with self and other, inner and outer, here and there. The artist continually changes his position in a perpetual attempt to reach towards selfassurance or anchorage, which never seem to take place.

Rui Calçada Bastos studied Painting at the Porto School of Fine Arts and the Lisbon School of Fine Arts, and Visual Arts at the Centre for Art and Visual Communication – Ar.Co, in Lisbon. After a residency in Paris, at Cité international des Arts, he moved to Berlin in 2002 for a residency at Kunstlerhaus Bethanien. In 2004, he was awarded the Federal grand for Science, Research and Culture in Berlin. He continued his travels with residencies at the Macao Museum of Art (CN), Tate Modern (UK), Vila Aurora in Los Angeles (US), Reis Residency in São Paulo (BR) and Officina Mundi (PT). He received the first prize at the International Video Festival of Macao in 2011.
Rui Calçada Bastos has been exhibited internationally, mainly in the US, Brazil, China, Portugal, Spain, France and Belgium. He had two major personal exhibitions in Portugal: a solo show at the MAAT in Lisbon in 2016 and a large-scale retrospective at the Colégio das Artes in Coimbra, in 2019. His works are included in public collections in Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Brazil, Spain and Portugal.
