RICARDO JACINTO (Lisbon, 1975) lives and works in Lisbon. Working as an artist and musician mainly focusing on the relation of sound and space (which coexist several times in his installations). By focusing poetically on particular physical and symbolic contexts, Jacinto focuses on creating situations where spatial and sound interventions propose an altered perception of exhibition spaces.
The artist has concluded a PHD in Music and Sound Arts at the Sonic Arts Research Center / Belfast. He has also graduated in Architecture at the University of Lisbon-Faculty of Architecture, and Sculpture and Advanced Visual Arts at Ar.Co / Lisbon. The artist also studied at the School of Visual Arts, New York and pursued musical studies at the Hot Clube de Portugal and Academia de Amadores de Música / Lisbon.
