Julião Sarmento // A Short Story

One of Portugal's leading artists, Julião Sarmento centers his work around the construction/deconstruction of fiction. His paintings, films and videos bear many references to cinema and literature, and often concentrate on the notion of the fragment: the fact that every image on view is both more and less than it seems.
For this book he brought together a number of pages from the great Classics of literature, such as James Joyce's Ulysses, combining text with fragmented and unsourced imagery. The result is a story constantly shifting it's fictional grounds, one of the phantom-stories that became Sarmento's hallmark.
