  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Showtime, by Filipe Branquinho, is a proposal to re-read the social experience of Mozambique. Showtime, the name given to the rooms rented by the hour in the Maputo traffic area, evokes the work of two Mozambican photography historians, José Cabral and Ricardo Rangel.

    It is also in the continuation of the project Ocupações, in which Branquinho presents, in pose and large format - can we see Courbet - anonymous professionals, who are represented in their work context, surrounded by their tools and work equipment. The same dignity, through a pose representation, is given to sex professionals, with whom Branquinho establishes a close and trusting relationship, similar to a regular client, but here, the affiliation is fully satisfied by the possibility of capturing and working stories of women, through the photographic narrative.

Filipe Branquinho

Mozambique Born in: 1977
Translation in progress

Filipe Branquinho was born in Maputo in 1977 where he currently lives and works. Branquinho grew up during the civil war in Mozambique, in a lively environment closely linked to the world of journalism and the arts, becoming particularly involved in this field through his contact with some of the biggest names in the Mozambican art scene, such as António Quadros, José Forjaz, Ricardo Rangel, Kok Nam and José Cabral.

He is self-taught, in artistic terms, and studied architecture at the Eduardo Mondlane University in Maputo, Mozambique, and at the State University of Londrina, in Brazil. Branquinho discusses social issues, focusing on the reality of Mozambique, especially the population's ways of life, mythologies and urban dynamics. In its practice, it explores themes such as class difference, culture, politics, collective memory or work. His style combines his architectural affiliation and his familiarity with the “school" of Mozambican photography, fusing genres such as portrait and landscape.

His work documents a changing society, is a survey or an inventory of cities, of architecture, suggests personal stories, documents and draws a map of a contemporary Africa, denying any demand for exoticism. In the commercial area, Branquinho works in documentary, industrial, architectural and interior photography and portrait photography.

He was present at the 58th Biennale di Venezia, 2019, at Mozambique pavilion.
