PIPA 2010 exhibition took place at MAM-Rio from September 25th to November 14th 2010, showcasing works by the four Finalists Artists of PIPA’s first edition: Cinthia Marcelle, Marcelo Moscheta, Marcius Galan and Renata Lucas.
Renata Lucas, the big winner of PIPA 2010, showed “Mínimo denominador comum” ( “Lowest Common Denominator” ), an installation that worked with the Museum’s window frames, with cuts and knobs that mislead the public with false doors.
Marcelo Moscheta, winner of Popular Vote 2010, exhibited two artworks: “33 montanhas” (“33 Mountains”) – installation with drawings in graphite on expanded PVC and iron – and “Void” – an old topographic map worked with cuts, stamps and aluminum.
Cinthia Marcelle presented the 8’35” video “Cruzada” (“Crusade”), that was later in the year awarded with the main prize of the Future Generation Art Prize 2010 of the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, from Ukraine.
Marcius Galan, displayed the sound installation “Desenhos (interseção)” ( “Drawings- Intersection”), 2009-2010, with speakers playing the sound of a pencil drawing circles on a paper.
