BRENO ROTATORI — EMBODYING THE SUBTLE
Embodying the subtle (selected works)
Breno Rotatori works with photography and video, having developed in his artistic practice a deep relationship with silence, pauses and the cycles of the earth, in an attempt to understand different ways of relating to each other and to nature. In constant investigation through the universe of audiovisual languages, Rotatori has intertwined his work with life experiences he went through ― such as the seven years he lived in a community in the state of Minas Gerais, from 2014 to 2020.
In those years, outlooking a life close to nature and far from the urban, Rotatori carried on with photographic records. From that period onwards he set out to express the possibility of embodying the subtle, beyond the image itself, extrapolating the picture’s material dimension. After all, for Rotatori, every form has its own internal counterpart to be glimpsed at through what is unsaid by the image.
In the last nine years, Rotatori has taken part in several exhibitions, held in venues such as the Amsterdam Fotografiemusiem, Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Les Rencontres d’Arles, PHoto España and Centro Cultural São Paulo. He has been featured in publications as Talent Foam Magazine, Talent Issue British Journal Photography and Festa – Sueño de la Razón. His production can be found in the collections of Brazilian institutions such as the São Paulo Museum of Modern Art (MAM-SP), the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rio Grande do Sul (MAC-RS) and Itaú Cultural.
