The book reflects the artistic process of Luísa Mota’s work for the last fifteen years. It serves as an introduction and approach to a unique and dense artistic practice that unfolds here at a graphic and conceptual level. The Artistic Practice of Luísa Mota is a project conceived by the artist in close collaboration with design studio Macedo Cannatà.

“Getting to know the work of Luísa Mota is like delving deep into one’s subconscious; it is both exhilarating and unsettling similar to the sensation of riding a roller coaster in an amusement park; you want to do it but as soon as you walk onto the platform to take your seat and push the guard rail down a sinking feeling lays in your gut, then you do it all over again just for the thrill.”—Sylvia Chivaratanond
