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 Clara Ianni, who is a PIPA nominee who is a Finalist this year, Paula Krause, who is a PIPA nominee for the PIPA 2016 and Vitor Cesar, PIPA nominee in 2010, 2012 and 2016.
Clara Ianni explains that the artistic methods are in a constant dialogue with something that is outside the art field itself. Also, the artist defines the art works as something more analytical, so to speak, and through the recognition, decomposition and montage of a particular material or process it creates an open, critical, or reflective reading. Clara also had an exclusive interview with PIPA Institute Curator Luiz Camillo Osorio, click here to read the complete interview.
Watch Clara’s video:
Vitor Cesar talks about how fundamental it is to understand the historical and economical context of a place, in architecture. The artist has finished, recently, a project in Poland that he defines as “walking through the city in a chaotic state of mind”.
Watch Vitor’s video:
Paula Krause embraces photography as an analysis exercise of her figure, image and actions. Paula talks about her work as a way to put the image of her body in contact with other people. The art, in her point of view, works as a model for her to act in the world.
