Carlos Issa (Brasil) artist in residence during January and February

Homesession continues to collaborate with Galeria Sé in Brazil by receiving this year the artist Carlos Issa who will be a resident of Homesession during January and February, before leaving for the Feria Arco in Madrid.

 

Carlos Issa was born in São Paulo, Brazil, where he lives and works. His research incorporates abstract drawing , sound art, experimental design and photography.  He has a published a series of artist’s books that can be found in institutions such as Printed Matter in New York, Motto, in Berlin, as well as Tijuana, in São Paulo.

He is well known by his experimental music project funded em 1999 called Objeto Amarelo that explores the various layers of sound either in the studio and in the stage and was one of the first groups to be presented in art galleries in Brazil, he has a few albums that dialogue with the live performance without reproducing it , they collaborate with many important names of Brazilian music. As Objeto Amarelo, Carlos Issa also developed a very powerful visual language used in the covers and posters of the band.

His practice also operates within a broader field; he has organized and participated in independent exhibitions applying DIY exhibition display methods which anticipated, at the end of the 1990’s, the multiplicity of means  and vehicles for the circulation of art, both inside and outside of the market. He has worked as a curator of experimental music events and art collectives such as “Supercollina”, at Galeria Logo, and “Conversão”, at Galeria Sé, both in São Paulo, Brazil. He has participated in group exhibitions both in Brazil and abroad, such as “Tropical Funk” at Whitechapel Gallery in London and “Dobra”, at Ferme du Buisson, in Paris. He had a solo exhibition that was held in 2017 at NADA. Since 2018 he has being represented by Sé and had his first solo show fully dedicated to his contemporary visual practice.

OPEN STUDIO: DALTON PAULA
Con la colaboración de  Sé Galeria (Brasil)

Sábado 23 de febrero, 12-15h. 

Dalton Paula exhibirá en Homesession sus obras realizadas durante su residencia antes de presentarlas en la feria ARCO de Madrid. 

La base del trabajo de Dalton Paula es el cuerpo: el cuerpo negro, silenciado por el miedo, la inseguridad, la individualidad y la fugacidad. Sus referencias se encuentran en los suburbios, las congadas (fiestas religiosas y culturales afro-brasileñas), los terreiros (lugares de culto candomblé) y los ritos de las religiones nacidas en África. Los mitos adquieren nueva vida y sentido. El cuerpo individual como punto de partida para alcanzar la colectividad. Paula usa el silencio para comunicar ideas, despertar lo que es incómodo en nuestra sociedad, repensar y encarcelar imágenes y para abrir barreras y mostrar otras estructuras capaces de reconocer el protagonismo de individuos que han sido silenciados históricamente.

Dalton Paula (1982) vive y trabaja en Goiânia, Brasil. Entre muchas exposiciones institucionales, participó en la 32a Bienal de São Paulo en 2016 y la Trienal 2018 Songs for Sabotage en el New Museum, en Nueva York.
