Movimento Coaxial

2019


The exhibition Movimento Coaxial is a research based process made by Pedro Vaz in the context of the residency program at Pico do Refúgio in São Miguel, Azores. In this location the artist found a series of documents and art works: the biography and work the painter and ethnographer Luís Bernardo de Ataíde (1883-1955). These paintings by Vaz became relevant in the artist´s body of work because they are landscapes of the natural environment of the island and at the same time influenced by another artist. This exhibition raises the question the subjectivity of the artist´s choice of the landscape context. All the works are intersected by a double nature: choice, no choice; framework, no framework. What is visible and what is removed from this visibility.
