AGURA-SE Group (Brazil)
This group of artists met for the first time at a house for rent in São Paulo, in order to present their work. The result of this meeting, beyond the exhibition itself, was a cycle of lectures and workshops that lasted for three months. From that point on, the idea of creating situations for art, instead of waiting for them to happen began to grow and branch out, guiding the group’s ideas in their work today.Therefore, the group is made up of an independent platform, and self managed, whose objective is the construction of alternative structures for the proposition of actions.
Born in São Paulo, Giba currently works in the development and printing of linoleum and wooden matrices on fabric, for clothing uses. The investigation of pseudoscience, the depiction of people at risk, the banalization of violence and pornography are all part of his artistic practice.
Originally from Campo Grande, currently living in São Paulo.
The artist starts working from political, religious and marketing questions that cross the texture of a plastic discourse, gathering elements from tradition and from the daily routine context. The handling of images happens with the appropriation of catholic icons, historical characters or monuments. Prado uses several techniques in his pieces, and his questioning poetics establishes a criticism over the contemporary society.
