Vivian Caccuri

Country:

Brazil

Position:

Artist

Mora e trabalha no Rio de Janeiro. Vivian Caccuri utiliza o som como veículo para cruzar experimentos de percepção em questões relacionadas a condicionamentos históricos e sociais. Por meio de objetos, instalações e performances, seus trabalhos criam situações que desorientam a experiência diária e, por consequência, interrompem significados e narrativas aparentemente tão entranhadas como a própria estrutura cognitiva. Vivian já desenvolveu projetos em diversas cidades do Brazil e exterior, icluindo Amazônia, Accra, Detroit, Helsinki, Vienna, Veneza, Kiev, Valparaíso entre outras.

“My time in CAPACETE was a period of wandering around Rio de Janeiro looking for its most interesting sounds in order to take a group of twelve on a silent excursion. The unusual aims of my visits gave me a lot of interesting insights and new friends with whom I have a strong connection till this date. As food was important for my collective experience – the silent day would end in a talkative dinner at CAPACETE’s then-new headquarters – I had never cooked so much and in such large portions. Those dinner parties were unforgettable and I think they represent what CAPACETE does best, which is to gather people around art, oral culture, activism, food, and alternative ways of organizing the many different layers of life. The end of my residency was not exactly easy to get over, as I was already feeling home and am now openly nostalgic about it.”
