Annually, artists who take part in PIPA Prize are invited to record an exclusive video-interview. With them, we learn more about the artists, their careers, ideas and motivations. All the interviews are produced by Matrioska Filmes.
Today, we release the second interview with PIPA 2015 nominated artists. We talked with Ana Ruas
Ana Ruas is a PIPA nominee for the first time this year and gave an exclusive interview for the Prize. The artist lives in Campo Grande, in Mato Grosso do Sul, state bordered by Paraguay and Bolivia. In the video, Ruas talks about how the place where she lives is an invitation for her artistic practice, which provokes the viewer with visual games.
Born in Rio Grande do Sul, South Brazil, the artist focuses her investigation in the city and the urban space. Ana Ruas tells that she seeks giving new meanings to the places occupied by her. “I build ephemeral architectures through painting”.
