Homesession next residency artist during January an February 2019: DALTON PAULA (BRASIL)
Dalton Paula was born in 1982, lives and works in Goiânia, Brazil. Among many institutional exhibitions he participated at the 32a Bienal de São Paulo in 2016 and 2018 Triennial: “Songs for Sabotage” at New Museum, in New York.
The basis of Paula’s artistic work is the body: the black body, silenced by fear, insecurity, individuality, and transience. The references are in the suburbs, the congadas(Afro-Brazilian religious and cultural festivals), and the terreiros(Candomblé worship places) and rites of African-born religions. Myths acquire new life and meaning. The individual body as a starting point to reach collectiveness.
Paula uses silence to communicate ideas, to awaken what is uncomfortable in our society, to rethink and imprisoning images and to open up margins that presents these black bodies in new stories, other structures capable of acknowledging the protagonism of individuals who have been historically silenced. Such narratives are yet to be uttered, written, told, represented. This challenge prompts him to perform and take up (or continue?) this mission which began in the remote past that he cannot reach through memory, a mission undertaken by those who came before and led the way.
Our body exhibits more similarity through messages shared in internet space. Our online appearance are evaluated by algorithm, it spreads in a speed of faster than ever. This phenomenon plays an important role in designing our daily appearances through build-in-app filters, plastic surgeries and make-up.
Female has been struggled with the standard of beauty, which has brought us an entire beauty industry dedicated to manufacture perfection. We are suppressed, but at the same time, the pursue for the inclusion is the main force which motivates all the medical-technical development. In addition, Big companies such as Chinese Selfie app company Meitu, is affecting our evaluation of beauty, we can the modify our face through their predefined “beautify”“whiten”“slimmer face” adjustment, they upload the modified image to social media websites and creating the avatar(online image).
With the growing capability of modifying our face, body and identity each day- we are making our body renewable and modifiable. Meanwhile, scientists are racing to experiment and to test 3D printing organs, body ink, Neurolink, and our understanding of biological body is changing to machine-like concept- where our body is assembled just as how machines are composed by different parts.
The project is a near-future narrative in which we push the interrelation between online self (developed through selfie-beautify app), beauty tech (plastic surgery, biomeds…), and automated online interaction, to a degree that the online/ offline relationship integrated fully and become how we produce life.This service allows the online avatars automatically interact with each other, through the data collected by beautify prosthesis wore by users. This autopilot mode is populated by users because it offers automated online interaction by reducing the labour of constant uploading and downloading; it also generates personalized content by analyzing user-generated data through Internet of Things.

Silky unt slimy things (springbreak 2030), Bejamin Collet in collaboration with Anne Renaud, 2014
“Starting from reality I deploy, I assemble and I compare many events and images; how things and images are built up; what they hide and what they mean. Nowadays we are surrounded by an intense images production from whom I don’t know issues and I don’t have any keys to read it.
Lewis Caroll wrote «So, said Alice, if the world has no sense who will stop us to invent one.» Installation and composition interest me a lot in this sense. In addition, poetic and prospective that exist in all things around us allow me to make my own world. I wouldn’t say an isolated world but more a filter or a language through which I can understand, observe and stand my day to day surrounding, a way to « think-with ». I set a display made of tools, materials and features in aim to create speeches, tales and fictions. Combining writing, documentation, archiving as well as sketch, sound and video, my installations are kind of «ideas cases». All those fragments and tracks form/create a kaleidoscopic investigation of our world.”
“Sometimes, we preserve; we discard, we fetish or we destroy an object because of its association with a moment in our past. No matter how the moment was joyful; hurtful; meaningful or unforgettable, that feeling only turned into fragments of our lives through pieces of objects. In Fragment project, I try to mingle your past and my current turning into something in between.”
From 2008, Yu-Hang Huang has created a series of work by combining performance video and sculpture installation to investigate the notion of “fluidity of identity”, which related to mobility, displacement, and sense of rootless caused by migration.
Huang had lived in North America for nine years before moving back to Taiwan in 2010. She had received numerous grants and exhibited her work internationally including USA, South Korea, Taiwan, Canada and Europe. She is currently in residence at Homesession.
