Caio Mahin - Brazil -
"What I would like to say about my work is that it was a way I found to trigger a dialogue. After having lived in different contexts, seen and learned so much, I feel my experience as an artist can feel a little isolated from the rest of the World. Thus, in search for a place of recognition and belonging, I developed a need to reach other beings in whatever possible way.
My pieces became signs, syntaxes and sentences which I arrange so to speak to the exterior and I place them next to the body, as if they were my own voice. They stand as sharp figurative shapes, like figures of speech decorated with humor and drama and are intents to approach all things that permeate life as I comprehend it, such as culture, identity, spirituality and sexuality.
Who will hear the shape of my lust and pain howls?"
