João Maria Gusmão & Pedro Paiva


Sombra magnética


Chama meteórica

Gusmão and Paiva are best known for a number of short, silent 16mm films that they have developed since 2004, which reveal the artists’ curiosity for both classic existential philosophy and seemingly absurd plots. On first glance many of their works appear rather obscure, involving a surreal and often humorous cast of characters who wander through seemingly illogical narratives and unidentifiable landscapes, creating an uncanny and mysterious atmosphere. Yet Gusmão and Paiva’s films are far from being purely comical or simply peculiar; they are rather concerned with questions of subjectivity, choice, freedom, and the nature of existence itself. In short, they examine the position of the individual in the center of an inexplicable and enigmatic world.
