Falke Pisano

It might or it might not be the right moment, but my talk will be about disintegration.
Falke Pisano lives and works in Sao Paulo and Amsterdam. Her installations, sculptures, drawings, diagrams and speech-performances often reflect on, and bring into question, the institutions and structures that shape the social political and narrative space within which individuals negotiate their relation to, and engagement with, the world.

In the publication ‘’Figures of Speech’’ (designed and co-edited by Will Holder, published by JRP- Ringier, Christoph Keller Editions, 2010) Pisano brought together her work focusing on the act of speech in relation to different forms of agency in artistic production.

The artist second cycle of works (2011-) “The Body in Crisis” looks into continuous and repetitive occurrences of moments where the body is thrown into a state of crisis through violent shifts in the conditions of life, and the formal possibilities of representing this body in art.

Her latest work “The value in mathematics” (2015-2016) addresses the relation between culture and mathematics, questioning the universality of mathematical discourse and the implications of a heterogeneous approach to mathematics. It constitutes a first part of a new research cycle on the development of the sciences in modernity and the way its institutions have contributed to a restricted and exclusive idea of knowledge.

Pisano’s latest solo exhibitions include Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe (2016), CAC Synagogue de Delme, Delme (2016), REDCAT, Los Angeles (2015), Praxes, Berlin (Jan.-Jun. 2014), ar/ge Kunst, Bolzano (with Archive Books, 2014), The Showroom, London (2013), Ellen de Bruijne Projects (Amsterdam, 2007, 2011, 2015) Hollybush Gardens (London, 2009, 2012, 2015), De Vleeshal (Middelburg, 2012). She participated in major groups shows such as the Sidney Biennial (2016), Istanbul Biennial (2013), Venice Biennial (2009) and Manifesta (2008). She performed at Museo Reina Sofia (2012), the 5th Berlin Biennale (2008) and Lisson Gallery, London (2007). In 2013 she won the Prix de Rome, the most important Prize for artists under 40 in the Netherlands.
