About

João Maria Gusmão + Pedro Paiva: Teoria Extraterrestre was produced in conclusion to a series of exhibitions which began in 2011 with “Alien Theory” at frac île-de-france, and le plateau in Paris, by way of Museo Marino Marini in Florence, and ended with “Papagaio”, 2014–15 (premiering at HangarBicocca in Milan then moving on to the Camden Arts Centre in London). Teoria Extraterrestre is an extensive monograph on João Maria Gusmão + Pedro Paiva, condensing nearly four years of work and thought that have been compiled into a film cosmogony by the artists themselves.

For more than 15 years, the two Portuguese artists João Maria Gusmao + Pedro Paiva have been constructing an imaginative journey through films, photographs, installations, and sculptures that encapsulate philosophical, existential, and conceptual issues.

The publication features texts by Mattia Denisse, Luigi Fassi, Chris Fitzpatrick, Xavier Franceschi, Massimiliano Gioni, João Maria Gusmão, Katia Mazzucco, Philippe-Alain Michaud, Olivier Michelon, Alice Motard, Pedro Paiva, Gonçalo Pena, João Ribas, Alberto Salvadori, Antonio Scoccimarro, and Marcus Steinweg.

João Maria Gusmão + Pedro Paiva

João Maria Gusmão + Pedro Paiva

João Maria Gusmão (b. 1979 in Lisbon) and Pedro Paiva (b. 177 in Lisbon) have collaborated from 2001 till 2018 to produce films, objects, photographs, installations, and publications that question the boundaries of perception and address paradoxical situations within existential metaphysics. Subsequently, João Maria Gusmão has continued on his own to create a multidisciplinary body of work that is at once humorous, enigmatic, and absurd, containing references to literature and philosophy, yet primarily drawing attention to questions of reality and its representation. The artist lives in Lisbon.
