  • Bio:
    • I am a Brazilian-Italian video artist/film writer/journalist based in London between 1996 and 2009. I currently reside in Brazil. I hold an MA in film and television studies from the University of Westminster, London. My video work focuses on performance, media critique, automatic writing and I'm influenced by early video art, alternative television, Dada, Pop, Surrealism and avant-garde cinema in general.
    • I am also a curator and my most recent work was a series of Brazilian video art called VIDEO LINKS BRAZIL presented at the Starr Auditorium at the Tate Modern in London between 23 and 25 March 2007. Funded by the Arts Council of England. The programme was also presented at Museu Victor Meirelles in Florianópolis, Brazil, between 29 and 31 October 2007. In 2008 I co-curated the Hollywood-based video festival Freewaves.

Title: The art of video art
Synopsis:

2'18" | 2007

Based on footage from the Prelinger archives, The art of video art uses vintage TV commercials to create a visually retro essay about the ontology of video art and the art of the televisual age. The imagery is combined with a sample from an early 1980s synth pop song called Suis-Je Normale by French pop singer Nini Raviolette. It has been widely shown in festivals in Europe, including the prestigious Madrid Abierto.
