Interview with PIPA 2016 Nominated Artists | Meet Ayrson Heráclito

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 an interview with Ayrson Heráclito, who is a PIPA nominee for the third time.

Ayrson Heráclito

Ayrson Heráclito 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. The artist has participated in an exhibition in Germany where he cleaned people with popcorn, simulating a religious ritual in Bahia. Before becoming a performance in Berlin, “Bururu” already existed in video format.
