Marco Godinho, the Portuguese-Luxembourgish artist, has been tapped to represent Luxembourg in the 2019 Venice Biennale. Luxembourg’s jury, composed of five museum directors from the country, said they hope to see Godinho produce an “ambitious and unprecedented artistic project and widen his artistic field in the years to come,” as reported by the Luxembourg Times.
Godinho is known for work of a kind typified by Forever Immigrant (2012), a wall-installation of thousands of ink stamps blotted into a swirling, wind-like pattern and all reading “forever immigrant,” an homage to the artist’s immigrant status in Luxembourg. Other works of his also confront topics of national identity and immigration, from collaged maps to text-based pieces.
