Biography

Brazilian artist, lives and works in Rio de Janeiro. Vivian Caccuri experiences sound in unusual compositions that disorient the conventional arrangement of everyday experiments. Sound systems, microphones, speakers, cables, chains, networks, lamps, candles and mosquitoes are some of the elements present in her installations and performances, which move visible and invisible, audible and inaudible layers. Vivian's investigations touch the body, memory and history, and from the composition of sculptural installations and trails - synchronized with specific circumstances of each of her researches - the artist builds wearable objects, delicate fabrics sewn and interwoven with threads and lines, stones and beads, which depict mysterious landscapes, as well as sound sculptures that emanate sometimes delusions and noises, sometimes melodies and mantras. In her works - bi, three-dimensional and with sound - the materials are malleable and soft for a period that may or may not reach rigidity, and vice versa. Vivian uses thinning tools, her music connects temporal dimensions that dig the space. Weight, volume and balance - dear to sculptural questions - embody the author's experiments and creations, which vary in scale, from the most imperceptible to highly vociferous productions.

 

In 2020, she participated in the "Social Movements and Feminist Future" group at the Seismic Movements exhibition, at the fifth edition of the Dhaka Art Summit, in Bangladesh, India, and at the collectives shows "Mecarõ - Amazonia in the Petitgas Collection" held by MO.CO.
