João Vasco Paiva: Reimagining Transitional Places

About the video

Hong Kong-based artist João Vasco Paiva is attracted to abstractions like “loss of control” and negative space.

He often draws inspiration from "non-spaces" (transitional public spaces such as subway stations and airports), codifying them into minimal audiovisual abstractions in different mediums, exploring different ways of perception.
