Sara Nunes Fernandes was born in 1985 in Setúbal, Portugal. She studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Lisbon 2005 and Goldsmiths College, London 2009.
Her sculptural works bounce back and forth between their complicity and their critique, or their irony and their sincerity perhaps, taking a retreat into studio practice and materiality as a rustic attempt at making ideas tangible.
She collaborates with artist Lucia Prancha, with whom she has presented video and performance work in Lisbon (PT), London (UK) and São Paulo (BR). Together they maintain Negociatas, a blog where both artists input paraphernalia necessary to their collaborative work and The two of us girls disappeared all of sudden together, a periodical publication.
Colin Min Sai is the moniker for one of her musical projects where plain and simple melodies around rough skinned day-to-day poetry are made to outlive the grey sky of a less tropical Island; the ordinary is enlarged into new, uncanny and comic reliefs from the present.
