Today, we release another five video-interviews with this edition’s PIPA Prize nominees. Talking inspirations, practices and career paths, the videos – which have been produced since the first edition of the award, in 2010 – have become an important source for documenting the creative process behind some of the most interesting names of Brazilian contemporary art. Produced exclusively for the PIPA Prize websites by Do Rio Filmes, check out below Bruno Cançado, Francisco Magalhães, Ivan Grilo, Paul Setúbal and Virgínia Pinho‘s video interviews.
See Francisco Magalhães’ page to learn more about his career, view images of his works and read critical texts.
A PIPA Prize nominee for the first time this year, Paul Setúbal‘s works are centered on the body. Hence, no wonder that his constant transit between Goiânia, Brasília and São Paulo have had a large impact on his production. “For a while in Brasília, during this crisis situation, we felt an energy in the city that was really important and intense for my work. On the other hand of this process, living in São Paulo, the energy emanated is completely different than the one from other places,” he states.
Virgínia Pinho has been combining more and more her artistic and academic works lately. Currently studying for her Communication Masters at Universidade Federal do Ceará, she researches images of work in the films of Harun Farocki. The moving image is, incidentally, her preferred means of expression: she has directed many short films, which have been awarded in art fairs such as Arte Pará and Cine Ceará.
