Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in Italy
João Maria Gusmão & Pedro Paiva: Papagaio



João Maria Gusmão & Pedro Paiva: Papagaio
ITALY
MILAN  •  HangarBicocca  •  12 June - 26 October 2014
 
 
The exhibition is devoted to the artistic duo whose presence at the latest Venice Biennale revealed their ability to use the language of cinema and installations in a unique, original manner. The exhibition winds its way through different settings and includes a large number of works made between 2004 and 2014, with many movies on film, three Camera Obscura installations (environments that recall the origins of cinema and photography) and a small cinema. The artists have produced ten new works for the exhibition, including a film shot on the archipelago of São Tomé and Príncipe, a former Portuguese colony in the Gulf of Guinea.

João Maria Gusmão and Pedro Paiva are an artistic duo who have been working together since 2001, producing films, sculptures, photographs, installations and anthologies of texts that they themselves describe as “poetic-philosophical fiction”. Together with their work as visual artists, they also published a philosophical journal called Efluvio Magnetico.
