Nuno Cera’s work does not try to construct, and nor is it built on any kind of existential metaphor. Indeed, his work is inscribed more within a logic of urban construction than within a logic of prolonging life in art. His photographs and videos have existence as their condition, but they assume that the action of existing is related to a burying of the subject in the things that are out there, that exist and that happen.

A non-existentialist existence in which it is the loosing of oneself in things and paths that allows an encounter of the subject with himself and the discovery of the ingredients of which he is made. An inward gaze that stands as a moment of discovery of an infinite number of things: objects, people, colors, forms and landscapes. Cera’s work, which is neither modern nor romantic, is a fruit of experience of the urban condition, and above all of experience of the person who in the major cities – the realm of skyscrapers and sterile concrete high-rises – finds in the idea of life itself the most permanent and inescapable nostalgia. It is a private feeling: it is not a lament or the anticipation of a loss, but it is the stating, as Chatwin writes, of the “natural unhappiness of our poor mortal condition”. --Nuno Crespo (Fantasmas)
