Second Sundays: Artist Interviews, March 2015



A collection of interviews recorded as part of our open studio sessions during Pioneer Works Second Sundays in March 2015. Bridget Hickey talks with Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira about the labour and craft behind his expansive project Transarquitetônica featured at the Museum of Contemporary Art in São Paulo in 2014. The cavernous installation used materials recycled from his home city’s urban fabric to create a massively scaled interior architecture that transitioned through historical Brazilian constructions, from snaking wooden columns, caves, and root networks to white modern structures. Artist David Colosi reads from his ongoing project Letters to Poly, written across time, space, and language, addressed to Francois Hippolyte Guillaume, aka Poly, who had been Claude Monet’s porter in the autumn of 1886 when the painter made 39 paintings at Belle-Île-en-mer – one of them was a portrait of Poly. Subjects of the epistolary tale include biographical information about Poly, John Peter Russell – the little-known Australian Impressionist painter, Claude Monet, Henri Matisse, Auguste Rodin, Vincent Van Gogh, Adolphe Sax, the Nazi occupation of France, the constructions of the Atlantikwall, John Coltrane, Paul Virilio, Anatole le Braz, and Synesthesia.
