Commuting through industrial urban spaces in Vancouver and Sao Paulo, the artist examines the notion of existing simultaneously—physically or mentally—in different places and cultures. The intersection of two familiar landscapes, through un-idealized images of his current and former home provokes a reflection far-removed from nostalgia.
Alexandre Klinke is a composer and media artist from Sao Paulo, Brazil, based in Vancouver, BC. With a background as a musician, as well as a videographer and video editor, his works encompass different fields such as media and installation art, music for film, sound design and performance. The division and sense of foreignness associated with the experience of immigration are often present in his pieces, where he seeks to find connections and patterns in seemingly unrelated events, juxtaposing audio and video material from different times and places.
