ARTIST STATEMENT



I am a Brazilian artist working across disciplines and based in New York.


Point of articulation

Of the wings of birds


My latest works involves performances in remote landscapes. Then, I turn the experience into video and multimedia installations in traditional and unusual spaces such as schools, observatories, churches, and landmarks. These projects explore the intersection between art, philosophy, sociology, science, and literature.


The Volcanic Poetry of Mineral and Beings

Rocks. Bodies.

Matter decomposing to                                    

Serve as fertilizer, to become soil.                              

A rock and a man are

By definition or dream

The arrested motion through space.     

                                                       

It is what remains of a collision.                                                    

What kind of cosmic dust links                                              

                    all things?

What comes next?


In my works, it is possible to rethink the relationship between place and humans as knowledge devices in the construction and reconstruction of one's sense of belonging.
