Bloom Projects Exchange Series: Silvestre Pestana, Breathless

Exhibition Website

May 21 2017 - Aug 20 2017

Breathless features an intimate view into the vast universe of one of Portugal’s most pioneering artists. Pestana’s practice, which evolved out of a background in experimental poetry, has involved forays into the realms of sculpture, video, performance, photography, and gaming over the past fifty years. These works seek to explore how humans interact with and negotiate a variety of controlling forces in the world and how art can be a vehicle for challenging those very same forces, be they technological, economic, or political.
