On view | “It’s Gonna Rain”, solo show by Cadu

(Nowy Sącz, Poland) The title of the exhibition is derived from the piece of music by Steve Reich, who in 1965 achieved the effect of a mechanical loop, replaying on two reel-to-reel tape recorders the words ‘it’s gonna rain’. Formally, the piece was a precursor of electronic music. Cadu’s attitude to modernist music is entirely empirical. The artist is fascinated by borderline sound and spatial forms that transcend the instrument itself.  Cadu derives rhythm from the repetition of contrasts; he finds it in natural cycles and in marking out topographic and distance pointers. A childlike curiosity and experimental instinct returns in Cadu’s works in the shape of toy mechanisms, modified to suit new meanings, as well as in natural history experiments and recycled materials.

Opening | “It’s Gonna Rain”, solo show by Cadu

(Nowy Sącz, Poland) “It’s Gonna Rain” by the Brazilian artist Cadu reads like an analogue hypertext, full of looped narratives and topographical references. The works are stand-alone but they also build mutual relationships, like an experimental piece of music, in which sound is complemented by the text, movement or object. At the periphery of these overlapping languages, a space has been created for disruption, noise and action aborts. These are all indispensable for complementing the processes set in motion during the exhibition, summoning the realness of life in the context of art, founded on the destruction and rebirth of the concept of creation.

PIPA winner takes part in artistic residency in New York

As in the previous editions of IP Capital Partners Art Prize, the winner of the main award wins a prize of R$100,000 and part of this value (approximately 20%) is assigned for a participation of the artist in an International Artistic Residency Program, for the period of three months. From 2010 to 2012, the chosen program was at Gasworks, in London. From 2013 until now, winners started taking part in the Artistic Residency Program at Residency Unlimited, in New York. Cadu, PIPA 2013 winner, was the first winning artist of the prize to join RU, and soon, Alice Miceli, PIPA 2014 winner, will participate in the residency program. During her stay in New York, Alice Miceli will give three exclusive interviews, so we can follow up her experience in the city and the involvement in the program, as it happened with Cadu. The partnership between Residency Unlimited and PIPA Prize worked so well that it will stay for 2015. PIPA winner this year will join the program in 2016. Learn more abou RU and watch the videos by Cadu during his residency.
