    • I share the idea of an art that creates new reality instead of offering its conventional model. I want to provoke the birth of view that goes beyond the boundary of reality itself. Viewpoints which stress an order that exists "a priory" in nature and can be developed again and again… Aspect that makes the work to exist as a signal, giving the onlooker a chance to go deep into his/her life experience and mind. Universal signals to which the individual responds in a unique manner and creates his/her own reality.

    • I express myself through single-channel video, video installation, and video combined with art. These are empathetic tools that help me better reflect circumstances that are otherwise hard to assimilate or understand, sometimes due to our own ignorance about ourselves, given the little interest we have in introspection or, simply, due to the fear of knowing how we actually are in our most intimate beings. In my case my work has always centred on video, videointalations, photo, drawings, boxes and objects which for me reflect more easily those sensations or feelings which are dificult to assimilate or undenstand because of our own ignorance or lack of experience. My idea is to continue working on artistics projects with this philosophy in mind and make the public feel those rich, pure sensations and help them reflect on their own emotional situation. Love, but also fear, pleasure, anguish, happiness, anxiety and doubt, among other emotions, all make up part of my work. I hope in some way to de-dramatize the situations and eliminate their aggressive tone, so that the viewer doesn't feel them directly, but rather reflects and understands their meaning, the reason for their existence.

    • I see a work of art as a kind of dream, a matter, which in its silent vagueness conveys what sometimes clear conceptual thinking cannot communicate and is otherwise inexpressible. Paradoxically the most important think in a visual work of art – its spirit – is actually invisible. I always need to get involved emotionally and mentally with a subject in order to start exploring it through the means of art. Usually such involvement results in a series of works that often evolve through the years. However the things I am interested in are the idea, the principle, the type, and the relationship between man and environment. In this sense, even when I paint concrete objects, I am an abstract artist, as far as “to abstract” means to remove or subsume concrete details with the purpose of reaching a more general idea.

    • I am a multidisciplinary artist, who believes the most important thing being an artist is to have freedom of thinking. When I work, I try to understand the way, how we, the humans, perceive the world. How we interact with our surrounding environment. Based on this, my last works have been realized on way, representing the idea on many layers, arranged in multiple levels; from the shallow to the deepest, and which can be understood in many different ways.

    • Rather than approaching self-portraiture from an autobiographical perspective, I push the boundaries of what I define as “self” and “other” by playing with ideas of identity, gender, archetype, emotion and the visual interpretations and possibilities that exist within them. I do not consider myself a photographer, but rather an artist and storyteller using the camera as a tool to create. I can more deeply explore my conceptual ideas by embracing the roles of both photographer and subject. I am continually drawn to concepts involving the subconscious, alienation, time, memory, transcendence and surrealism. Other sides of my work explore my love of paradox and the juxtaposition of light and dark, beauty and beast. Most of my photographs use experimental in-camera methods, mirror distortions, modified lenses and handmade attachments such as the stroboscope. I enjoy creating unique ways to express the intangible realms of emotions, thoughts, poetry, dreams and nightmares.

    • During his studies at Sculpture studio of Jozef Jankovič, Sergio attended several sculpture exhibitions and symposiums. After completing his Masters in Oporto and returning to Slovakia, he switched to painting, drawing and collage. He combines disparate elements inserting objects into paintings (e.g. chips in 'Senhorita Batata Frita') or cut out pictures from the packaging and promotional items symbolizing the consumption. The chocolate boy has become a typical feature of Bacao. In several paintings resonate the topic of commercial culture and its criticism, as the author himself has said - we are surrounded by a commercial world which makes us very vulnerable (eg 'Vulnerability'). However, Sergio comments this world rather than directly criticizing it. His pictures are rather witty allusions to bind to the object of desire which can be a simple chocolate. The blond boy with a sweet smile in his face has become the logo of his works which he can cut out ten copies for one collage. Multiplication is the mean for propagation of commercial items and Sergio shows it now ironically. His smiles are a caricature of the 'american' smile and joy and parodies the material sufficiency. Irony does not abandon him even in other pictures when 'One for all and all for one' shows a whole family with the same face sitting in front of the TV that shows the one same face and on the right side a plant grows the one same face, or when a beauty of the Ads is shown as 'Meat'. Some works are much more personal and arose because of events that happened in Sergio's life. '3o tomate, 3.vajce, 3rd ball' is a game with different denominations of the male testes in various languages (Slovak, Portuguese and English) but it was painted due to an unpleasant disease personally experienced. 'Amor (Love)' – this painting might explain the cause of his staying in Slovakia: a slightly ironic diptych representing two deformed figures surrounded by a very hearted cardiac image. In the painting 'Seven years in Slovakia', the Slovak flag appears sewn to the Portuguese in which Sérgio's silhouette shines through. It is a symbolic image representing the two homes of Sergio. The sculptural objects are a return to the beginnings but dominant in the Sergio's production became the funny and ironic collage-comments to things around him and a collection of personal records. The exhibited is also a kind of playing with forms and experiments where the Sculptor is sometimes acting foolish but always through very refreshing creations.
