Helerson Oliveira
BRAZIL
Since his childhood, with 10 years old, he observed and percieved the architectural change of the city, I recall wanting to register the old houses, know of every history and to be amazed by the establishment of the mobile telephone network in the cities, the quantity of mobile phone antennas skewered in the urban landscape. My favorite tours were the museums and historical cities. I followed the hip hop movement closely, participating in workshops and attending to shows and events on the main strands of Dance, Dj, Rap and the Graffiti. At the end of my teenhood, i liked and attended to many styles of art, but i decided to study the way of written communication, make journalism with the intent to register the social contrast. In a phrase or a "concept" it always repeated itself...

"Those that can't remember the past are doomed to repeat it" George Santayana

I felt the need and scarcity of our country to not be able to solve its problems and relive the same issues of the past. I thoght seriously to follow the career of investigative journalism, and with that came a great desire for the image, easiness and dynamism to photograph and eternalize an instant. Influenced by Cartier Bresson, Sebastião Salgado and Araquem Alcântara. However, we live in a country that investigative journalism suffers with the sores of impunity. I followed the path of self knowledge and spirituality and did not leave the documental path aside. I am self-taught and began with an analog camera in the times of film development (revelação de filme). I chose to register the street arts and "invisible" people in 2005. In 2008, i began to register the Consolação region, the Augusta Street, specifically, and the constat change in street arts. I made many friends and knew many people from the graffiti.

In 2013, i began to work exclusively in the area of audiovisial, photography, video, editing, content production for the internet. My prevalent language is the documental, registering the "ordinary", the common, the basic, it is like putting a macro lens onto a flower, or something extremally commom, and percieve that it can transforme into something extraordinary. I keep registering and following the changes in many parts of the city. I believe that as the time passes, the work becomes more relevant.

"ACIDENTE"
"Acidente" is an audiovisual trilogy that seeks to build dialogue between Brazil and Uruguay in pandemic times. Beyond the countless differences between these two countries (unparalleled under certain parameters), these countries lives an diametrically opposite reality in the pandemic conjecture which sediments distinc forms of living the daily lives, to percieve past and present, and to project the future. The neighbor country has the pandemic under control and the people leads a much less disruptive live than in Brazil, where there is no centralized strategy in fighting the virus.

This project proposes to research the poethics and aesthetics that emerges from each one of these realities at the same time in which intends to speculate on a future that bilateral potentialities are feedbacked.

The proposal of "Acidente" is to make 3 songs with its respective audiovisual. One song is composed by Fernando Velázquez, with lyrics witten by Francisco Lapetina, one song is composed by Francisco Lapetina, with lyrics by Fernando Velázquez, and lastly a song composed by 4 hands. The literary thematic and visual will seek to explore the daily experiences of each one of the artists in his own context, and the musical part will investigate fusions between the musical traditions of the two countries. The song that will be composed by 4 hands will reflect on the imaginary that bonds these two countries, more than an aesthetic speculation about the past in common, as a form to picture the future of collaboration and empathy.

Sudamérica Letters
The project is built on the reading of 3 letters written by Rico Dalasam, which continues the artist's recently released work, the album "Dolores Dala Guardião do Alívio". These letters, as well as the soundtrack, highlight the love life of a young black man from the South America, the construction of affections in his daily issues from an Afro-Latin perspective. Poetically, Rico says he is drawing a heart where, daily, a lot is erased. In the process of writing the letters, the author meets the Uruguayan artist Darío Marroche who graphically develops a style and language that goes along the work of Rico Dalasam in the printing of these letters.

The aim is to unite form and content, so they can not only be read, but also develop other artistic functions, evolving in various ways.
