Exhibition "The Song of Pedro Costa"


Audiovisual production, design and sound conditioning of the exhibition "The Song of Pedro Costa" at La Virreina Centre de la Imatge, curated by Javier Codesal.

Pedro Costa (Lisbon, 1959) is one of the filmmakers most appreciated by new film audiences and international critics, especially since the release of No quarto da Vanda (2000). His latest feature film, Vitalina Varela (2019), received the Golden Leopard for Best Film at the Locarno International Film Festival.

The Song of Pedro Costa is an exhibition conceived for La Virreina Centre de la Imatge and it is based on ten works, with titles alluding to the idea of singing: Down to Earth - Scrapbook (artist’s book, 1994) and Songbook of Fogo (documentary video to display the contents of the notebook), Balar de Balibar (projection, 2009), Ventura’s Song (projection, 2014), Our Voices Will Sing No More (set of three independent works projected in different rooms of the exhibition, 2022), Stone Song (five photographs on paper, 2015), Morna of Shadows (installation with five projections on screens hanging from the ceiling and soundtrack, 1994-2022) and Songs to Avoid Suicide (installation made up of the works On Suicide and To the Little Radio, both from 2022).
