Érothéisme, le dessin sacré

João Vilhena
Solo show

Érothéisme, le dessin sacré is a solo show featuring artworks by Portuguese artist João Vilhena.
It deals with the intrinsic connection that links eroticism and sacred in his drawing practice. Vilhena is interested in eroticism because of its transgressive force capable of lifting the forbidden without suppressing it: « Art may no longer have anything to do with the divine today, but I believe that it retains something sacred in its transgressive function ».
