Nuno Nunes-Ferreira


Seen from a far it is only a tree. A tree bare of it's leafs, black as night. Something sinister is foreshadowed, only revealed by a closer look. Each branch, each log is crammed up with numerous faces, historical images, mostly referring to the Holocaust. With his Family Tree, Nuno Nunes-Ferreira proposes an enigmatic game. The artist genealogical tree, and ours as well, is consists of Mankind's historical dark past. And within this landscape, beauty is replaced by the aesthetic of horror.
