Andreas Eriksson in the Thirtieth Bienal de Sao Paulo, Brazil

The Thirtieth Bienal de São Paulo will take place from 7th September to 9th December 2012 featuring gallery artist Andreas Eriksson.

Curated by Luis Pérez-Oramas (chief curator), André Severo and Tobi Maier (associated curators) and Isabella Villanueva (curator assistant), under the title The Imminence of Poetics, the Thirtieth Bienal de São Paulo takes its curatorial coordinates from the multiplicity, trans-nationality, recurrence and permanent mutability of artistic poetics.

With a view to establishing itself as a platform upon which to encounter this diversity of poetics, the fundamental tool the Thirtieth Bienal São Paulo - The Imminence of Poetics has chosen to adopt is the notion of Constellation - the main leitmotiv for which is articulation.

More than an exhibition of individual works and singular artists, the Thirtieth Bienal envisages an event that has the capacity to produce constellations of works and artists that dialogue amongst themselves, both within or beyond their programmatic reasonings; a platform for brokering approximations between works and artists that serve as effective tools for the renewal and production of meaning and signification.

In brief, the Thirtieth Bienal is about discursive acts - including modalities for the suspension and interruption of discourse - that feed off earlier discursive densities, off an organic memory of anteceding and nourishing enunciative or expressive acts which these discursive successors inevitably alter, deform and assimilate.
