PIPA 2021 nominee.

Victor Galvão (Belo Horizonte, 1994. Lives and works in São Paulo) is a visual artist who works with historical displacement of images. Working between the gallery, the cinema theater and musical composition, the main subject matter in his projects is time. Time understood both as sociopolitical dynamics and entropic phenomenon. His researches are structured by written language, in narrative intersections between existentialism and dystopian literature. In his projects, the following are frequently portrayed: scenes of urban and industrial landscapes, vestiges of the progress ideology and remains of a decaying modern project. Different materialities come from processes such as chemical development, analog video and digital image.

He presented the individual shows ‘Arquipélago’ (2019) at CâmeraSete and ‘Horizonte-instabilidade’ (2016), at Memorial Minas Gerais Vale, both in Belo Horizonte. Has taken part in collective shows since 2012 and was one the artists who organized the exhibition ‘Ninguém me dirá quem sou nem saberá quem fui’, at the independent venue Mama/Cadela, in 2017. In the audiovisual circuit, he had an entire show dedicated to his films at the Timeline#4 international videoart festival 2018, in Belo Horizonte. His films were shown at the shortfilm festivals of Belo Horizonte and São Paulo and many festival around the world. Since 2017, he is part of the collective Tarda, which works with music and audiovisual, and released their debut album ‘Futuro’ in 2020.
