Nearly all first-time nominee pages have been created, leaving out just eight artists pages to be created. Brand new information and artwork images by six PIPA 2014 nominees are now available on our website. Artists can send in all sort of data about them, this includes not just a CV or visual documentation of their work, but also curatorial texts and interviews.
This week we created pages for the following artists:

Many of Ianês’ works try to deconstruct the relations between artist/ artwork and spectator, inviting the public to actively participate on his actions to create situations of exchange, where language and its social roles come into play.
It is possible to realize through Mayana Redin’s work, interests in geographical, cosmological, philosophical and for other forms of fiction created by imagination and by world objects, using, for this, different artistic languages: from appropriating images and objects, to design, video and photography.
