The Pick Up, 2K video, 2018.
Taking psychoanalysis and literature as their starting points, Pablo Pijnappel’s works are meta-narratives that poetically combine cultural, historical and ancestral identities, meshed together by the prism of memory. Language always plays the main role, bridging the mechanisms of the mind and the world, in video installations, texts or performances operating on the crossroads between cinema, photography and novel. Born in a suburb of Paris, Pijnappel grew up in Rio de Janeiro and later studied in the Netherlands. He now lives and works between Rio and Rotterdam.
