Helena Almeida, Inhabited Drawings/Desenhos habitados, showing at Richard Saltoun Gallery, Great Titfield Street, London W1W 6RV, 27 March – 22 May, along with work by her Madeira-born contemporary Lourdes Castro (b.1930).

This is the first London show for Portuguese artist Helena Almeida, a student of the University of Fine Art, Lisbon, who has developed a body of work that marries unconventional materials with photography, drawings, and performance. She has had recent solo shows at Centro de Arte Moderna, Fundação Gulbenkian, Lisbon (2006), Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge, (2009), and the John Hansard Gallery, Southampton (2010). Her work is included in the collections of the Tate, the Museu d’art modern i contemporani de Palma, and she represented Portugal in 2005 at the Venice Biennale.
