This week, we released two interviews with Pipa 2016 nominated artists: Ayrson Heráclito and Luiza Baldan (who is a PIPA 2016 finalist). Heráclito, who is a PIPA nominee for the third time, talks about what he understands as art and his work, which in recent times have had an artistic and at the same time religious bias. Luiza Baldan talks about the displacement issue and the importance of the text in her works. Watch these exclusive interviews for PIPA Prize.
“DearMeatCutsDevilMayCry”, Adriano Costa’s first solo show in the United States will feature works made using a wide range of processes, and includes paintings, works on paper, and a diversity of sculptures. The exhibition will reflect the booming and broken dream-state that is Los Angeles, the political and economic disasters facing Brazil at a moment when it is very much on the world stage, and the perennially decaying cornucopia of information that is the Internet.
“The Unfaithful Replica” turns its gaze to the struggle between the forces intervening in this construction of meaning
(Madrid, Spain) Virginia de Medeiros, PIPA 2015 winner, participated in this group show that proposes a rethinking, inevitably ethical-political, of representation and reality, of the possibilities and the responsibilities of the artistic act as knowledge, questioning the power of representations, not to reflect reality but to look for its meaning.
This week, we released an interview with Luiza Baldan, who is a PIPA 2016 finalist. The artist talks about the displacement issue and the importance of the text in her works. She also talks about her project with pictures and text about the Guanabara Bay. Watch this exclusive interview for PIPA Prize.
