PIPA 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2019 nominee.

Bachelor in Physics from the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) in 1979, Otavio Schipper explores the perception of time and the cultural memory of objects. In his installations, elements of hard science and technologies from different periods lead the public into territories more closely associated with dream states and imagination dives, instead of a systematic organization of knowledge and predictions about the universe. Schipper has presented his work in cities such as Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Berlin, London and Paris. In 2017 he has received the KLAS Award by the Max Planck Society, working as a resident artist at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands and at the Max Planck Institutes in Germany.
