Vivian Caccuri (b. 1986, São Paulo, Brazil) lives and works in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Recent solo shows include Röda Sten Konsthall, Göteborg, Sweden (2019) and MAC Niterói, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2018).

Her soundworks and compositions have been broadcast on radio stations including Resonance FM, London, UK; Kunstradio, Vienna, Austria; and Rádio Mirabilis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 

Caccuri investigates the physical, sociopolitical and spiritual impact of sound related to history and social conditioning. Her practice ranges across objects, installations, and performances, creating situations that disorientate everyday experience and, by extension, disrupt traditional meanings and narratives. 

Gustavo von Ha (b. 1977, Presidente Prudente, Brazil) lives and works in São Paulo. Brazil. Solo exhibitions include SARACVRA space, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2017); MAC USP, The Contemporary Art Museum of São Paulo University, São Paulo, Brazil (2017-2016); Oscar Niemeyer Museum, Curitiba, Brazil (2014). Group shows included MAM, Museum of Modern Art, São Paulo, Brazil (2018), 11th Mercosul Biennial, Porto Alegre, Brazil (2018); Bienal Sur, Centro Cultural Parque de España, Rosario, Argentina (2017) and CAL/UnB, Casa de Cultura da América Latina, Brasilia, Brazil (2017). 

Gustavo von Ha is a multidisciplinary artist, whose work interrogates dominant discourses on matters such as politics and history, ultimately challenging hegemonic narratives. His projects are thoroughly researched and operate inside and outside the art system, infiltrating other platforms and purveyors of images such as the internet, cinemas, and other formal and informal economies. The artist himself always features in his work thus demonstrating a way to analyse the role contemporary artists play in shaping the future of our society – while at the same time revisiting the past.
