• (1978) Argentina, Neuquén.

    The desire for—as well as the uncertainty of achieving—communication is a recurring concern in Pica’s work. Devices for communication such as megaphones, antennae, podiums, and signal flags are reappearing motifs. They attest to what Pica has described as a longing not only to have something to say, but for the moment of actually finding one’s voice.

  • (1959) Brazil, Rio de Janeiro.

    Barrão was born in 1959 in Rio de Janeiro, where he still lives and works. His work began in the 1980s, making inventive appropriations of quotidian objects from the consumer world. Between 1983 and 1991, he was part of the group 6 mãos (6 hands), with Ricardo Basbaum and Alexandre Dacosta, developing activities with video, music, live action painting, performances and objects. Currently he is part of the group Chelpa Ferro, formed in 1995, alongside Luiz Zerbini and Sergio Mekler, creating works which combine sound installations and performances. In 2012 he had an important solo exhibition at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, in the United States, and in 2010 in Portugal at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. He participated in the 2007 edition of the Panorama de Arte Brasileira and has had exhibitions in the MAC of São Paolo; Paço Imperial, Rio de Janeiro; Pinacoteca of the State of São Paulo, among others. In the beginning of his career he participated in the celebrated exhibition Como vai você geração 80? at Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro which presented an entirely new generation of Brazilian artists.

    The sculptures of Barrão depart from appropriated everyday objects – such as household appliances and toys. In his recent works the artist breaks and reassembles decorative ceramics, leaving the epoxy joints visible. While some works are born from an accumulation of similar objects such as a group of elephants or figs, others follow another path uniting disparate elements such as skulls, cups, nymphs, parrots and beyond.

    Born in the USA in 1975, Daniel Oliveira graduated from the Faculdade de Belas Artes da Universidade de Lisboa in 2001. The artist developed most of his work in Azores, where he lived until 2013, when he moved back to the USA, where he currently resides.

The formalism o his creations and conceptual work go beyond any intellectual analysis and demand an emotional interpretation. The artist has exhibited in Portugal, the USA, Germany and Serbia. Daniel Oliveira was the recipient of the following awards: Prémio D.

  • (1976) Los Angeles, USA.

    Born in 1976 in Los Angeles, California.

    Received his BFA from Otis College of Art and Design in 1999. He moved to Guadalajara, Mexico in 2003 and then to Berlin, Germany, where he opened his bar Salon Aleman in 2007. He currently resides and continues his activities as an artist in Guadalajara, Mexico.

    Eduardo Sarabiaʼs recent work has been inspired by the independent economies and folk history of northern Mexico. He frequently works with the materials favored by local craftspeople, using ceramic tiles, hand-woven textiles, and glass to create sculptures and installations that address the complex exchanges — social, cultural, and material—that occur when this region and its history encounters outsiders. Without limiting himself to a critique of the “exoticization” of Mexican culture, Sarabia examines the gap separating definitions of taste (and, more bluntly, of legality). Mixing romantic visual narratives in regards to illegal matter, fine arts and commerce, creating an environment that slips between the oneiric and the openly materialistic, Sarabiaʼs work takes on an important exploration of understanding the physical and human consequences of economic forces.

    Filipa César is an artist and filmmaker interested in the porous relationship between the moving image and its public reception, the fictional aspects of the documentary genre and the politics and poetics inherent to the production of moving images.

Since 2011, César has been researching the film history of Guinea-Bissau, developing that research into the project Luta ca caba inda. She is a participant of the research project “Visionary Archive, 2013-15” organized by the Arsenal Institute, Berlin.

  • (1960) Brazil.

    Gustavo Resende was born in Passa-Vinte, in Brazil, in 1960.

    Lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil.

    Lecturing on sculpture and its relation to space and place at the Foundation Armando Álvares Penteado, (FAAP), since 1995. Educated in architecture at the Faculdade de Belas Artes, obtaining a master’s degree from Goldsmith’s College (University of London), and now doctor of Visual Poetics by way of ECA USP. He has participated in exhibitions at institutions such as the MAM São Paulo, Paço das Artes, Pinacoteca do Estado, MAM Rio, Funart and Candido Mendes among others. Selected exhibitions include, ‘Intimidade’ at the Paço das Artes, ‘Gus e os Pequenos Animais’ in the Casa Triangulo, ‘Geografia Negra’ in the Centro Universitário Maria Antonia, ‘Panorama 1999’ at MAM, and the Bienal de Havana 1991. In 1994 he made a year-long residency at Goldsmith’s College in London through the British Council Fellowship, in 2000 he was awarded a Vitae award and in 2006 he made a six month residency in Paris at the Cité des Artes. In 2013 he produced the solo exhibit “Mergulho” in the Pinacoteca of the State of São Paulo.

    The relation between sculpture and drawing is one of the questions which permeates the work of the artist, as well as his preoccupation with the interaction between a space and the materials – and how in certain precedents, these elements result in the conception of a narrative, conferring an identity to the site and creating a sense of place.

  • (1976) Cape Town, South Africa.

    Robin Rhode was raised in Johannesburg and graduated from the South Africa School of Film, Television and Dramatic Arts, Johannesburg, in 2000. The Berlin-based multidisciplinary artist engages a variety of visual languages such as photography, performance, drawing and sculpture to create arrestingly beautiful narratives that are brought to life using quotidian materials such as soap, charcoal, chalk and paint. Coming of age in a newly post-apartheid South Africa, Rhode was exposed to new forms of creative expression motivated by the spirit of the individual rather than dictated by a political or social agenda. The growing influence of hip-hop, film, and popular sports on youth culture as well as the community’s reliance on storytelling in the form of colorful murals encouraged the development of Rhode’s hybrid street-based aesthetic. His strategic interventions transform urban landscapes into imaginary worlds, compressing space and time, as two-dimensional renderings become the subject of three-dimensional interactions by a sole protagonist, usually played by the artist or by an actor inhabiting the role of the artist. Melding individual expressionism with broader socioeconomic concerns, Rhode’s work reveals a mastery of illusion, a rich range of historical and contemporary references, and an innate skill for blending high and low art forms.

    Given his first major museum solo show by Haus der Kunst, Munich, Germany, in 2007, and Rhode has since had major solo exhibitions at a number of important museums around the world, including the Hayward Gallery, London (2008); the Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, Ohio (2009); the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles (2010); the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia (2013); and the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase, New York (2014). He has participated in notable group exhibitions including New Photography, The Museum of Modern Art, New York (2005; the 51st Venice Biennale (2005); Staging Action: Performance in Photography Since 1960, The Museum of Modern Art, New York (2011); and the 2012 Sydney Biennale. His work is included in numerous public collections, including the Castello di Rivoli, Turin; Centre Pompidou, Paris; The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; Miami Art Museum, Florida; Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, France; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Solomon R.

  • (1971) Portugal, Porto.

    Rui Moreira was born in 1971, in Porto. He currently lives and works in Lisbon. Moreira studied at Ar.Co as well as in the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He is currently professor of drawing at Ar.Co. His work is represented in the collections of the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, the Luso-American Development Foundation, Collection Société Générale – Paris, Catlin Art Collection – Zurich, MUDAM – Luxembourg, and the Fundação Ilídio Pinho. “My base is always drawing, drawing as a place of risk and nervous relations with the world. My most recent drawings are drawings based on my body’s physical experience of the Sahara Desert and of the chaotic Arabic architecture. My sculpture is abstract and exists in non-places, which are physically interior landscapes, psychological in nature. Desire is the dominant feeling connecting the sculptures to their surrounding landscapes. I am interested in everything that cannot be put into words, which is unspoken, or which you speak softly of. I’m not just dealing with creating new forms and new techniques, but also creating/opening up new territories for art.” The artist is currently represented by the Galerie Jaeger Bucher, Paris.

  • (1979) Burkina Faso, Déou.

    Saïdou Dicko was born in 1979, in Déou, Burkina Faso. He currently lives and works in Paris, France. A Fulani shepherd, he learnt how to draw when he was five outlining the shadows of his sheep on the ground of the Sahel. In 2005 he starts using photography to capture secret truths in a different way. He tells the story of his life as he captures, in Dakar, Ouagadougou Déou, Lubumbashi, or Abidjan passing shadows in images that can be either real or completely surreal. Six months after his photographic debut, the artist presented his first exhibition at the “Off the Dakar Biennale” (2006), where he received a prize, the first of many. Using painting, photography, or video, Dicko transforms the representation of forms, giving life to visual phenomena, to the physical and psychological phenomena of light, marrying the two extreme values at the heart of the contrast between black and white. The artist finds pleasure in combining opposites in order to talk about equality, union, and maternal love…

  • (1974) Portugal, Terceira.

    Sandra Rocha is from the Azores and lives in Paris. Her photographic work reflects and revolves around the relations and tensions that surround the human being and the four elements, which compose the universe. Her images are inhabited by young women, unique animals and strange landscapes. The dream-like universe that she offers to us is the result of her poetic and mysterious reflection upon identity, territory and the human relations of those who reside therein. She has presented her work in various institutions and museums such as the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian and the Museo de Arte Moderno y Contemporáneo de Santander y Cantabria (MAS), and her work is represented in various collections, both private and public, such as EDP Foundation, BES Art, Arquipélago – Contemporary Art Center e Coleção de Arte da Região da Cantábria.

    Her work is a feminine investigation of the feminine, raising questions regarding the roles which are traditionally attributed to portuguese women in the domestic space. It is a constant dialogue and reflection between tradition and contemporaneity, in the sense that it is a constructive interaction between that which may be defined as local and universal values. Using iron and textiles in her sculptures, she convokes a series of of elements taken from the Azorian popular culture, in a discourse which is at times playful, and at other times, provocative.
