Entitled Simone, this new piece by Joana Vasconcelos took two years to be completely built and required the help of 60 individuals, from seamstresses to architects. The monumental creature takes the shape of an inflatable sculpture as a way to introduce fantasy and humour.

It hangs in the space like a giant insect, or perhaps a spaceship, embellished with sequins, pearls, crochet embroidery, LED lights, and metallic fabric.

The Valkyrie highlights a massive structure of steel and iron and it is fully coated in different Portuguese fabrics and its veins are made from LED lights that present a singular visual effect in tones of blue and purple.

“The idea was to make a connection between craft and technology—I used Portuguese fabrics and incorporated LED lights in three colours. The one request from the client was to create an all-white work. It was very interesting to do this and I had to rethink things, as I am a baroque artist who uses lots of colours.” – Joana Vasconcelos
