PIPA Prize 2020 nominee. 

Rodrigo Bueno is the creator of the atelier Mata Adentro (Jungle Inside), name of a home/workspace, located in Lapa in São Paulo. Mata Adentro is an invitation to sensitize the dynamics of the natural space, a laboratory for the production of supports for experimentation of occult languages in the subconscious, in the multidimensions of the surroundings, in the diversity of life contained in the legacy of the natural world, source of cultivation and resilience. The studio has broken part of its concrete floor so that time and land are comfortable with each other, a place where recovered materials, mainly wood, iron, dirt and plants collected from urban waste, are transformed into installations, sculptures, paintings and environments around meeting technologies, species of gardens that speak of the continuity of life, the axis that sustains the whole, of culture in constant movement. Mata Adentro is a name chosen to expand the authorship of a single artist in actions of collective processes since we are individuals inserted in collaborative environments. The studio has shown its work in the country and abroad for more than twenty years of mostly three-dimensional, vivid and immersive works that relate to the bond of nature and humans, superimposing ancestral narratives and fluid energies.
