Descripción del Artista

Nasceu em Lisboa a 5.12.1950, onde vive e trabalha. Médico, psiquiatra, professor da Faculdade de Medicina de Lisboa. Adquiriu a primeira peça aos 19 A, uma pintura de Mário Botas. Foi sócio de Galeria Alda Cortez, nos anos noventa, período em que ampliou a sua coleção em particular com arte portuguesa contemporânea. A partir do início do século desloca o seu interesse para a arte contemporânea europeia e americana contando para o efeito com o apoio do Víctor Pires Vieira. Mais recentemente, desde 2005, inclui na sua coleção um núcleo de fotografia delimitado: dos anos 30 até ao início do digital integrado apenas por fotografia a preto e branco. A coleção de arte contemporânea portuguesa e internacional que Nuno Félix da Costa tem vindo a reunir nas últimas décadas. Colecionador meticuloso, que procura a qualidade e extrair sensações das obras de arte, a coleção que reúne preenche o espaço doméstico, quase em modo de horror vácuo. Nela, convivem, nos vários médiuns, obras de arte contemporânea portuguesa, com obras de artistas internacionais do pós-guerra, sobretudo europeus e norte-americanos, incluindo peças exigentes (escultura de Jake & Dinos Chapman). É, ainda, de destacar o mais recente interesse em colecionar fotografia a preto-e-branco. -------------------------------------------------- Nuno Félix da Costa was born in Lisbon, where he lives and works, both as clinical psychiatrist and teacher at the Medical School of the University of Lisbon. His first exhibition of paintings took place in 1983, in the Lisbon gallery Módulo. In this first collection of paintings the relationship and the tension between painting and photography was already present, as well as his concern with literary and poetic representation. Still in 1983, he published his first photographic book, ‘Retratos de Hábito’ (Portraits of Habit), where he attempts a poetic photographic discourse on aspects of the Portuguese cultural identity. He has since never ceased to explore and parody the equivocal strong documentary value generally granted to photographic images, through the use of different techniques such as the mixing of chemical manipulations and subtractions on images, and the use of painting over their surface, often choosing to subordinate the images to a pictorial development. He has recently revisited photography in a book published in 2008, ‘Portulíndia’, where the articulation between images does not set or propose any formal, argumentative or narrative aspects but where, like in a poem, the existing links are reminiscences of submersed perceptions and understandings. He has also published poetry since 1993 and this practice has become increasingly important in his approach to both his photography and his painting. Since 2016 he coordinates the Artist Residency Programme Córtex Frontal, in Arraiolos, Portugal. He is currently immersed in various photography projects that involve exhibitions and books in 2019/2020.
