Pedro Neves Marques: A Mordida

Pérez Art Museum Miami – PAMM

04 Dec 201828 Jul 2019

Born in 1984 in Lisbon, Pedro Neves Marques is a filmmaker, visual artist, and writer whose research often takes place in Brazil. In his first solo museum presentation in the United States, “A Mordida (The Bite)”, he presents two newly commissioned short films based on research completed at a genetically modified mosquito factory in São Paulo, Brazil. In these films, the biological epidemic of the Zika virus is paralleled-through the lives of its main characters as they navigate through a non-binary relationship within Brazil’s increasing rise of conservative political forces. Inspired by horror and science fiction films, his stories examine the psychological and bodily trauma of biological warfare while in times of political crisis.
