USINA DE ARTE
Usina de Arte (Água Preta /Pernambuco/ Brazil), is an artistic and botanical project initiated by the Pessoa de Queiroz family. A dialogue between Art and Nature, the local community from North East of Brazil, and the public at large. Artists are invited to install their work in the old sugar cane plantation under the curatorial work of Marc Pottier. "Conversa com Artistas" is a collection of video interviews with artists (3 seasons) from Usina de Arte, short films filled with ideas, creativity, and art, the stories of how some of the installations were created and how the ideas came to the creators’ minds. Explore situations of strength and fragility, balance, and instability, present in nature, politics, social relations, and the world of work. This initiative aims to awaken the creative capacity of individuals, so that, as a community, we could fill in the gaps in sustainable development opportunities generated by the collapse of the regional sugar industry. In Portuguese with subtitles in English.
