Placid For A While
PV Thursday 28th Oct. 2021 at Zona Mista
João Vasco Paiva, Coimbra, Portugal,1979, transforms his perceptions of spaces he inhabits, and objects found within them, into works that include videos, sculptures, and installations. These transformations result from processes of mapping, translating, moulding and casting. Paiva’s work examines ephemerality, and durability, of the structures and
languages behind the construction of often neglected items, drawing out their continuously shifting characteristics.
