Artist Feature – Paulo Arraiano

Paulo Arraiano [b. 1977, Portugal] works as a visual artist, co-founder of re_act contemporary, an art laboratory and residence Programme based in the Azores Islands and of no.stereo, an independent artist-run platform.

Paulo’s research relates to the idea of visual seismography, assessing surges concerning new natural, social and cultural paradigms. This artistic production interweaves with his research which involves matter and anti- matter, and engages the body, the landscape and technology to address questions concerning climate changes, biosphere, extinction, transhumanism and the anthropocene.

He has participated in several exhibitions, both solo and collective including Dimora Artica [Milan]; MAAT Museum [Lisbon]; Berardo Museum [Lisbon]; Uma Lulik_ [Lisbon]; Hawaii-Lisbon [Lisbon]; Pivô (S.Paulo); Museu d’Historia de Catalunya (Barcelona); Art Rotterdam [Rotterdam]; Hangar (Lisbon); Balcony [Lisbon];  Cidade das Artes Museum [Rio de Janeiro]; MAH Museum [Azores]; Quartier General, Centre d’art Contemporain [La Chaux-de-Fonds]; Aeroplastics Contemporary [Brussels]; Petra Gut Contemporary [Zurich]; TAL Gallery [Rio de Janeiro]; ArtRio [Rio de Janeiro]; Pena Palace [Sintra]; Galeria Graphos [Rio De Janeiro]; Museu do Côa [V.N.
