Vivian Caccuri

A Gentil Carioca, Rio de Janeiro

Mosquitos Also Cry

Vivian Caccuri uses sound as a vehicle to combine experiments in sensory perception with issues relating to history and social conditioning.

Caccuri’s illustrated lecture is inspired by the mosquito and its relationship with humanity. Mosquitos buzz to each other as a love call, but their buzz in the ears of humans, once understood, is now hated. Caccuri proposes delirious ways to re-bond with these insects.

About Live at Frieze London 2018
Live is a platform for interactive installations and performances, presented by galleries.

Curated by Diana Campbell Betancourt (Samdani Art Foundation/Dhaka Art Summit), this year’s programme is entitled “Control ~” (“Control Tilde”) – a command on a computer keyboard that unlocks all formulas in a spreadsheet and thus makes them visible. Visitors will encounter works by international artists, drawing attention to unexpected connections and hidden formulas which impact wider social, political and economic realities.
