Interview with Gustavo Speridião

As part of the IMAGINE BRAZIL exhibition, Gustavo Speridião (artist, Rio de Janeiro) spoke to Cheryl Sim, Curator at DHC/ART Foundation for Contemporary Art about his work presented in IMAGINE BRAZIL.


Gustavo Speridião’s works are guided by the idea of “Kino-Glaz“, a concept developed by the Russian avant-garde. His actions are sustained by the idea that the artistic world should imitate the human eye. He uses this technique to explore daily life situations and works with different media but is most known for his paintings, photos and video. He engages with and criticizes Art History, traditional gestures in photography and the contemporary visual culture. Among his solo exhibitions are “Superficial Studies” at Galeria Mario Schemberg – FUNARTE Award in São Paulo, Brazil [2015]; “Geometrie – Montage – Equilibrage, Photos and Videos”, curated by Jean-Luc Monterosso and Guilherme Bueno at La Maison Europeene de La Photographie, Paris, France [2013]; “A photographic Journey”, curated by Beatriz Lemos at Galeria Kiosko, Santa Cruz de La Sierra, Bolivia [2009] and “Utopic Graphic: The Dream Circus” Galeria Fayga Ostrower, FUNARTE Award, Brasilia-DF, Brazil [2007]. He lives and works in Rio de Janeiro.
