Artist Quote

" We humans are born and all aboard the same burning ship, and we are watching this fire break out. "


" 우리 인간은 태어나 모두 다 같은 불타는 배에 타고 있으며, 이 화재가 일어나는 것을 지켜보고 있다. "

Thiago Rocha Pitta’s temporal and sensitive body of work depicts interventions with the environment. Through watercolors, photographs, sculpture, and video, Rocha Pitta focuses on small yet emotive elements of the natural world that are simultaneously ominous and melancholy. Driven by a preoccupation with the passage of time, particularly in natural settings, Rocha Pitta often manipulates the pace of his work, confronting his viewer with quiet, curious introspection and an open-ended sense of longing.

티아고 로차 피타(Thiago Rocha Pitta)의 시간적이고 민감한 작품은 환경에 대한 개입을 묘사합니다. 로차 피타는 수채화, 사진, 조각, 비디오 등의 작업을 통해 불길하고 우울한 자연 세계의 사소하지만 감동적인 요소에 중점을 둡니다. 특히 자연 환경에서 시간의 흐름에 대한 집착에 사로잡힌 작가는 종종 자신의 작업 속도를 조작하여 조용하고 호기심 많은 성찰과 개방적인 갈망으로 관객과 마주합니다.
