Interseccion - Jorge Couceiro

Jorge Couceiro

From 1996 to 2001 I studied Fine Arts at the University of Vigo. Since then everything has happened oriented in some way towards artistic practice. I produce and exhibit my own work irregularly, generally on my own account, I have exhibited almost always in Spain but also in Germany and Portugal on a couple of occasions. When they ask me what discipline I dedicate myself to, I usually affirm that I am not too concerned about plastic creation, offering a more specific term because I doubt that any of those that exist is honest with reality, I am neither a painter nor a sculptor, I am an artist and this statement, no less, is the only one that I can assert emphatically over the years. From my career I have to highlight as special those moments in which I met other artists, who, in some way, expanded my possibilities.

INTERSECCIÓN 2020 AWARDS

AGAG award to the “Best Project Treatment” at LAB section
Lluny, by Lara Curto

“For the honest and well nuanced portrait of a figure that represents, with humility, the feeling of belonging to one’s land. For her approach loaded with an irony that arises naturally in the day-to-day life of a man in love with his culture ”.

Xurado Novo Award at Contemporánea section
(SUBTÍTULOS) saber sin estudiar, by Manuel Saiz

“For investigating an element that usually goes unnoticed in the film, for originally reversing the order of the elements of the image and for the textual and visual execution”.

Resorte Award at Escolas section
Ola Baby (Video-ensaio sobre a miña depresión), by Antía Carreira.

“For the sensitivity in the selection and assembly of fragments of family home videos and for their combination with texts of her own, endowed with a spontaneous poetic tone. For getting the viewer to project their own memories on the honest personal confessions of someone with whom they immediately feel empathy. Without ambitious appearance or claims of universal validity, for being able to transcend her personal circumstances that motivate her and serve her as a theme”.

A Colectiva Award at Galicia section

Inside the Microtubule, by Judith Adataberna

“The skill and subtlety in the hybridization of the different formats that the piece combines, by mixing documents and real and experimental recordings with the documentary format. For pressing the viewer’s sensitivity in a very shocking way by linking medicine with the current context. For flowing regularly, from beginning to end. And for being a tribute to mountain women. A difficult context for survival, especially in the past”.

-oito, by Berio Molina and Alexandre Cancelo
Xurado Novo Award at Galicia section
La bouche, promèner, non, non, non, by Acacia Ojea
