Review of the show of the PIPA 2011 finalists | Brazilian newspaper O Globo

United by the collapse – Finitude and setbacks of daily life permeate the works of the four young finalists of the PIPA prize.

In this text, the art critic, Marisa Flórido, says that the shortlisted artists for PIPA 2011, in their exhibition at MAM-Rio , even showing their works in different medias and poetics have a connection between them.
For her, the connection is the collapse that go through them.

She says that the collapse for these young artists is part of living, as much of its finitude as the everyday little setbacks, as much of the gears of power and the deviations from both the abysm between the narratives and images, and the open and arbitrary relationships between words and things.

Below the full story from the daily O Globo ( in Portuguese).
