PIPA 2014 nominee interview: Marcelo Jácome

Marcelo Jácome is asked by critic and curator Renata Azambuja: “Do you work alone or collectively?”

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.
