Check out this week’s video interviews: Laura Vinci, Marcelo Jácome and Pablo Ferretti

This week, three artists interviews were released:

Laura Vinci

The São Paulo-based artist answers a question by critic and curator Renata Azambuja: “Do you work alone or collectively?”

The artist explains her process involves both things. “I work alone and collectively. I work in a studio, which is quite lonely. I don’t like sharing with other people, I like being alone, it is a moment when I can concentrate and organize ideas. Then my work becomes totally collective, because I depend on other people from different fields, sometimes an engineer, a welder, a carrier…”

Vinci, who also works with stage design and art direction for theatre, tells us how her work “Palavras Congeladas” [Frozen Words] was built, and that she always carries on her a notebook to write down ideas that, if persist, can become a work.

Marcelo Jácome

The same question by Renata Azambuja is proposed to the Rio-born artist: “Do you work alone or collectively?”

To which he replies: “When I’m thinking about work, it takes place in a more lonely way, by myself. When my work comes out to the world and it is shown, I think it requires a collective setting perhaps, so it can become effective and be assembled.”

The artist speaks of the material research, papers, collages and colors and resulted in the works he does with kites: “Kites came in more as a plastic solution for what I wished than effectively as a poetic element or whatever” and says that on his everyday life, if he is not at his studio he is out walking.

Pablo Ferreti

orn in Porto Alegre but living in Rio, Pablo Ferreti uses figurative, abstract and some portrait and landscape elements in his works.
The artist says that, as a painter, it is necessary to work with the routine and understand the time it takes to process the materials, and that due to the nature of those materials he can only see the final result of his canvases after a few months.

In this interview Ferretti answers to a question by Beatriz Milhazes: “How do you develop your work process? Do you try a dialogue or a discussion?” And explains that for him, there is a negotiaton between the two, since his work is very much a negotiation between chance and control.

PIPA Videos

Since PIPA’s first edition in 2010, we hire Matrioska Filmes to carry out video-interviews with the nominated artists. Coming now to its fifth edition, the Prize goes on with believing in the importance of video that are yearly produced by Matrioska, exclusively for PIPA.

As MAM-Rio curator and Prize counselor Luis Camillo Osorio points out, in the text “Hunger for files”: If the prize aims to recognize and distinguish, the building of a contemporary memory looked for an amplified analysis of the circuit.
