Paola Rego “Oratorio” “Seven Deadly Sins” Venice Biennale Art Exhibition


Paola Rego was born in 1935 in Portugal, where she lives and works. His works are exhibited in the central pavilion of the Biennale at the Giardini.

Paula Rego presents moving scenes of the misery and ferocity of human relations in a society under dictatorship, as was the case in Portugal in the time of Salazar.

Images of totalitarianism and institutionalized violence against women, mothers' wickedness, and the fear and suffering of children who are victims of this collective madness engendered by despair.

The uncompromising satire of the atrocity of a hell on earth populated by terrifying, deformed and ugly people recalls the characters in the paintings of Francesco Goya and the caricatures of Honoré Daumier.

Pictures worthy of the songs imbued with sadness and melancholy of Fado; Fado means destiny in Portuguese.

Fado is a musical style born in cafes in working-class neighbourhoods in 1820-1840; it became a national symbol under the dictatorship of Salazar, established in 1932 and lasted until his resignation in 1968 for health reasons.

But the dictatorship continued to oppress the Portuguese people until 1974.
