Vivian Caccuri develops a series of projects in which she explores the cultural, physical, and social qualities of sound elements, providing new listening and perception experiences. Her work creates relationships between sound phenomena, public space, architecture, voice, and imagination through performances, objects, and installations.

 

Many of his pieces are built and “tuned” to be played like musical instruments and are designed to be activated by the viewer, individually and/or collectively. The artist is interested in the physicality of sound, especially the effect of low frequency (the bass) on the visitor's body. This performative character of Vivian Caccuri's work was also explored through a project called "Silent Walks", in which she regularly invited a group of up to 20 people to walk together in silence through the city, for up to 8 hours.

 

His work is part of the collections of MAR - Museum of Art of Rio, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and the Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.
