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.

Watch the third and last interview with Cadu, about his experience at Residency Unlimited, NYC

Now, returning recently from the United States, the artist gives us his last interview of the three video series, in which he reports on the experience he had at Residency Unlimited. In it, Cadu speaks about the exchange with artists of multiple nationalities that the residency period enabled. He also talks about the project “Wind Line”, which he created and that led to an exhibition in New York.
The artist, now preparing for a trip to the Atacama desert, says he still has not been able to analyse what happened in New York and he must be already prepared for the new trip. He would need a silencing process before going on another experience. “But then I remember a sentence by Bukowski, you will create no matter what, whether there is a cat meowing, a crying child or a leaking pipe. You have got to do things the way you can, not the way you want.”
