New interview | Shima

On this interview, the artist talks about how he first started working with performances through photography and answers a question by the critic and curator Guilherme Bueno about the meaning of doing art these days. “I think there is a meaning if there is a meeting, an exchange…”

Since the first year of the prize PIPA, in 2010, Matrioska Filmes produces video-interviews with the PIPA nominees.

Pointing out the importance of this production, MAM-Rio’s curator, Luiz Camillo Osorio, says:

When PIPA invited Matrioska film production to make these videos, its goal was to build a small database on Brazilian contemporary art. If the prize aims to recognize and distinguish, the building of a contemporary memory looked for an amplified analysis of the circuit. (…)

We are sure that the continuity of these records and their combination with the renewal of the artists’ pages – that has to be made in partnership with the artists and their respective galleries – will maximize the relevance of this database. A growing number of interested people, from researchers to collectors, have began using the PIPA website for the benefit of all. – extract from the text “Hunger for files”
