(para)sites | Pedro Vaz – A Natureza do Deslumbre
Pedro Vaz (Maputo, 1977) lives and works in Lisbon. His artistic work focuses on the research into nature and landscape making use mostly of painting, video, and installation. Personal contact with the place is central to his practice and projects very often include a field tour.
Throughout 2019 and 2020, he has concluded a walk across the Great Transpirenic Route (GR11). This undertaking is part of the production of the solo show "Num único acorde" presented at the Caja de Burgos Contemporary Art Centre - CAB (October 2021).
Amongst these excursions, he travelled on the Caminho do Ouro in 2016, linking the port of Paraty and the town Ouro Preto in Brazil on over 700km. The photographs and other productions resulting from the two weeks-long experience of this trip will be part of the works on display at the exhibition in Espuma dos Dias (December 2021), as part of the (para)sites project of the Lisbon Consortium and the Faculty of Humanities of the Universidade Católica Portuguesa.
