In every edition of the Prize, the participating artists are invited to record exclusive video interviews, an opportunity for artists to voice their ideas, talk about their creative processes and careers. The video interviews are produced by Matrioska Filmes. This week, we released interviews with Daniel Beerstecher and Marina Camargo.
After 5 years living in Brazil, the German artist Daniel Beerstecher, who has also lived in Mexico, says that living in different countries helps in his artistic production. Beerstecher speaks about one of his works “The Conquest of the Useless”, a 7-minute video in which the artist is sailing by the South of the Argentine Patagonia, towards Buenos Aires in a boat with wheels that is moved by the force of the wind. In his other work “Mas continua a vida…” Daniel puts side by side in a 5-minute video two distant realities: images of Itatiaia National Park in Rio de Janeiro and the tense sound of the game narration between Brazil and Germany in the last World Cup.

Marina Camargo speaks in an exclusive interview to PIPA Prize about the notion of displacement in her life – the artist was born in Maceio and has always traveled to see her family in the South – and how it changed the way she relates with people. “It doesn’t mean I didn’t have any roots in one place. On the contrary, I think I’ve had roots in several places”, says Camargo. The artist, working between Porto Alegre and Berlin, Germany, also speaks about the project “Lessons of sculptures” in which dancers are invited to react spontaneously with their bodies as they see the first images.
