Inês Bonduki, São Paulo, SP, 1984. – Lives and works in São Paulo.

São Paulo, Brazil, 1979. – Lives and works between Tokyo and Chiba, Japan.
PIPA Prize 2020 nominee  .

In February of 2018, Yukie received an email from Inês with an unusual invite: to create pairs of images taken simultaneously from São Paulo and from Tokyo, arranging the time via WhatsApp. Her initial idea was to approximate images with close temporalities but distant spatialities. Throughout the development of the project, the process was acquiring other rhythms, new contrasts, multiple meetings and conversations.Testing shapes and editing, the abundant material accumulated during the visual conversation between the artists was condensed in 10 vertical panels specially produced for the PIPA Institute collection.
