Che cosa sono le nuvole?

(2019)

 

ABOUT THE ARTWORK:  I think of solitude, open surroundings,  lines dashing into vapour. At some point it becomes an intuitive process pulling me. While I gather the words to describe it as I feel it deserves, I invite you all to look for your answer in “Che cosa sono le nuvole? (What are the clouds?)” – a series openly inspired by Pier Paolo Pasolini’s works.

 

ABOUT THE ARTIST: P. Correia was born in Sines, 1966, Portugal. With a multidisciplinary academic path in cultural animation (University of Paris V) and cultural practices (Universidade Nova de Lisboa), he did not resist, in the 80’s, the charms of screen printing, having found the perfect combination of this technique with a b&w photography lab. He was a cultural producer up to 2010. He followed the fine arts field, as well as that of music, theatre and street arts, having coordinated the production of two yearly international festivals over a period of ten years. He lives and works in Lisbon, having abandoned production while getting back to photography.
