Lives and works in Lisbon, Portugal.

Kitsch and folk culture, everyday objects wrapped up in crochet; Vasconcelos creates objects that on one hand want to democratize art through articles of daily use and on the other hand criticize the consumer himself. Crochet in her works is a symbol of universal language, the women’s language. She demonstrates an antagonism between handcrafts produced in different cultures and consumer goods of modern society.
Vasconcelos’ partly humoristic works, like the chandelier made of OB tampons displayed at the Venice Biennale in 2005, was also exhibited the Museum of Modern Art in Istanbul.
