Cao Guimarães

Cao Guimaraes work captures everyday moments that we tend to miss in the accelerated rhythms of contemporary life. What is usually implied becomes the subject of his artworks. Through a poetic gaze, the artist transforms the perception of time, provoking a moment of pause to the spectator, a moment of contemplation of reality. Looking at the world through a prism unveils a subjective dimension of reality. It is impossible to exclude subjectivity from the documentary. « The cinema of reality is the art of this encounter, an encounter with what we imagine and which turns out to be something else. In this revelation, in this fear, we are obliged to confront ourselves. Any reality can be the extension of ourselves, and every one of us can be the extension of the reality. » Cao Guimaraes
