Marco Godinho

The artistic works of Marco Godinho (*1978, Salvaterra de Magos, Portugal), a Luxembourger with Portuguese roots, often have a personal, poetic and philosophical dimension. The artist not only questions concepts such as time, travel and memory, but also encourages us to perceive what all too often escapes our attention. With subtle sensitivity to the expressiveness of the elements he uses, Godinho creates metaphorical works whose imagery responds to our desires and dreams. The seemingly random combination of elements of strong symbolic power in this work – crowbar, salt circle and root – results in a very down-to-earth navigational instrument that, like an improvised compass, is never disoriented and ensures that we never lose track as we sail over the waves of our imagination.
