Residentie Paulo Vivacque by VZL / Contemporary Art

Residency of the the Brazilian artist Paulo Vivacqua. The gallery is open of vistors.

Paulo Vivacqua elaborates his works based on the intersection of  soundand visual  languages. He seeks a hybrid territory between materiality and sound, between the intangibility of time as measured by sound and the physicality of the space in which the work of art is established. Vivacqua create installations which are intrinsically related to architecture and the contexts of the environments in which they are set up.  Using video and audio devices strategically placed in specific spaces, vivacqua suggests invisible trajectories in which the sounds, throughout the space and time previously configured by him, give rise to imaginary narratives. His works impose themselves as immersive ambiences in which space, sound and subject blend with and complement one another. Invested in artistic experience open to all sorts of contamination, Paulo Vivacqua composes a singular and dynamic oeuvre in which sounds conducts thought, thought evokes image, image promotes atmosphere and atmosphere reestablishes sonority.  (Text from xxx Bienal de Sao Paulo catalog)
