JOAO VASCO PAIVA
Wide Rothko | Hong Kong | 2008 | 10m
single channel video | color | sound

Wide Rothko is a sonic and visual abstraction of cultural materials, regarding the different connotations of several aspects common to urban and rural places: masses, landscape, soundscape, movement, flow. The piece converts the typical loop based approach to a more linear development, based on Gilles Deleuze's concept of time image, in "Wide Rothko" there's an exploration of 2d space representation and horizontally, where behind the representative qualities of the image there s the creation of a new hybrid space, the space of the image itself and the world that instead of being re created is in itself created.

 

 

João Vasco Paiva (b.1979) is a Portuguese artist based in Hong Kong since 2006. With a background in painting and advanced training in media technology, his work is characterized by the appropriation of observed phenomena, mapping apparently random situations and presenting them in an aesthetically organized framework through video, audiovisual performance, recording, and installation. He has taught at the City University of Hong Kong School of Creative Media and Hong Kong Art School/ RMIT University. Notable exhibitions include a recent solo outing at Experimenta in Hong Kong and group exhibitions at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art Lyon, the Museu do Oriente Lisboa, the Garage Center for Contemporary Culture Moscow, and the FILE festival in São Paulo.
