Marcellvs L. at the 18th Contemporary Art Festival Videobrasil (09/09/2013)
The 2013 edition of the Contemporary Art Festival celebrates an important moment for the biennial show. The main Brazilian event dedicated to the artistic production from the geopolitical South (Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, Middle East, Eastern Europe, South and Southeast Asia and Oceania) goes thirty. It is the only Brazilian international festival for contemporary art, with exhibitions, public activities, awards. As in previous editions, a major exhibition establishes a dialogue with the Southern circuit: besides the Southern Panoramas competitive show, this year the highlight is the three decades of experimentation and risk assumed by Videobrasil since 1983, brought together in the exhibition 30 Years.
Dates: 06 November 2013 – 02 February 2014 Opening: 05 November 2013

Marcellvs L. is a Brazilian video artist who has recently moved to Berlin. His ‘Rhizome’ series comprise mostly single-sequence shots in which the video camera is held still, at times drifting in and out of the subject: a seemingly ordinary moment, a detail or fragment, of city life. Recently he has been developing more ambitious video installations, which are full of delicate takes and revelations on time, progression and life itself.
