Since 1993, Gonçalo Pena (b. 1967) has created a vast collection of drawings, with a mesh of cross-references and suppositions that all revolve around the human figure. Within this immense collection, religion, history and ancient mythology are intertwined with political philosophy and social issues, creating an authentic cultural conundrum of references hidden behind each image. Published on the occasion of his exhibition – “Unfinished Mandarin” – at Kunstverein München, this book is the second volume dedicated to Pena’s oeuvre. With a collection of drawings selected by the duo of artists-turned-editors João Maria Gusmão and Pedro Paiva, the publication also contains essays by João Maria Gusmão, Chris Fitzpatrick, Pedro Paiva, and Post Brothers.
