'He was not a "political" kind of person. He just wanted to be honest and straight. But it was not easy in Korea to live like that,' writes curator Kim Inhye on artist Yun Hyong-keun.

Fabio Miguez began his artistic career in the 1980s when, alongside Carlito Carvalhosa, Nuno Ramos, Paulo Monteiro, and Rodrigo Andrade, he founded the artist’s space Casa 7. Miguez initially worked with painting, having participated in the 1980s in two editions of the Bienal de São Paulo: from that edition known as 'Bienal da Grande Tela' (1985), curated by Sheila Leirner, and the 20th edition of the exhibition (1989).
During the 1990s, he started to produce, parallel to his paintings, the series of photographs entitled Derivas, later published with the name Paisagem Zero in 2013. In the 2000s, Miguez started to develope three-dimensional works, such as the installation Onde (2006), Valises (2007), and Ping‑pong (2008), which expands his line of research and his medium of choice: painting. His degree in architecture brings to his work a constructivist influence that dialogues with concerns regarding scale, material, and figuration. The artist often deals with modular forms in relation to combinatory logic, employing repetitions and operations of inversion and mirroring.
