PIPA 2021 nominee.

Ilê Sartuzi (1995, lives and Works in São Paulo) is an artist graduated from the University of São Paulo (USP). His research involves sculptural objects, mapped video projections, installations and theatrical plays addressing issues related to the idealized image of the body, often fragmented or constructed from different parts; but also the absence of this figure in proto-architectural and digital spaces. The interest in the dramatic arts in recent years has given a kind of theatricality to his objects and installations that are animated by mechanical movements and interpret dramaturgies and choreographies. He participated in exhibitions at institutions such as Videobrasil (2021); Instituto Moreira Salles (2020); SESC (Ribeirão Preto, 2019; Distrito Federal, 2018); CCSP – São Paulo Cultural Center (2018); MAC-USP Museum of Contemporary Art (2017); Ribeirão Preto Art Museum (2017; 2015); Maria Antônia University Center (2019); Galeria Vermelho (2017; 2018, 2019); the three in collaboration with the research group After the End of Art that he has been part of since 2015. He presented theatrical plays performing video-mapping projections in spaces such as Oficina Oswald de Andrade (2018, 2020); Itaú Cultural (2019); Container Theater (2019) and TUSP (2019). Working for more than a year on a specific project, Sartuzi debuted his play without actors “hollow head doll’s foam” at Firma (São Paulo, 2019). In 2020 he was invited by IMS – Instituto Moreira Salles to produce a commissioned work resulting in the production of a video constructed with computer generated images (CGI) that dialogues with a late text, “Worstward Ho!”, by Samuel Beckett. He also held a residency at Olhão (2020), developing another similar video, “Night and Day”, which was later awarded with Itaú Cultural’s incentive.
