Pedro Vaz (Maputo 1977 - )


In the last ten years I have been developing an investigation on landscape, mostly in painting and
video-installation, concerned with handling the split between man and natural environment
that comes to replace an ancestral Cosmo-anthropological unity, previous to human conscience.
My work methodology is based on the proximity to real landscape, taking
part in immersive artistic residencies, mostly in nearly wild landscapes.
Recent examples are the participation in Labverde 2016 – Art Immersion Program
in the Amazon (The National Institute of Amazonian Research / Manifesta Art and
Culture), in Manaus, or the field tour to Caminho do Ouro, (connecting Paraty to
Ouro Preto), developed while Pivô Pesquisa Artist in Residence, in São Paulo, Brazil.
