Filipe Vilas-Boas was born in Portugal in 1981. He is a self-taught conceptual artist currently living and working in Paris. Neither a naïve technological utopian nor a reluctant technophobe, he explores our use of technology and its ethical and aesthetic implications. His installations, performances and conceptual artworks question the global digitalization of our societies, mainly by merging our physical (IRL) and digital (URL) worlds.
His works were featured in the Portuguese Emerging Art Books, 2018 and 2019 edition, and have been exhibited internationally, notably at Nuit Blanche in Paris, UNESCO, Biennale Siana, Le Cube, French Ministry of Culture, Biennale Némo - Le 104 (FR), Athens Digital Art Festival, Monitor - Heraklion Contemporary Art Festival (GR), Zaratan, MAAT Museum (PT) and at Tate Modern (UK).
