About the artist

Graduated by Escola Nacional de Belas Artes da Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (1995).

Participated in an international art workshop in London in 1994, and in the years 1996 to 2007, she attended courses at the Escola de Artes Visuais do Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro with the teachers Reynaldo Roels, Iole de Freitas, Guilherme Bueno, Fernando Cocchiarale, Charles Watson and Bia Amaral, and photograhy courses at Atelie da Imagem with Patricia Gouvea.

She began showing her works in 1999, at Museu Nacional de Belas Artes do Rio de Janeiro and then particpated in group exhibitions around the country, as ‘Tangências’ showed in 2001 at Gabinete de Arte Raquel Arnaud in São Paulo.

In 2004, she had her first individual at Centro Universitário Mariantonia da Universidade do Estado de Sâo Paulo, showing the sound architectural intervention ‘Espaço Amplificado III’.

She explores the photography via mobile device, being a fast and available for both capture and send images to the world.

Following this path she presented the individual VIRαVER at Centro Cultural Justiça Federal, in Rio de Janeiro in 2008.

Another line of her work are the Interactive Sound Installations generally presented in the form of Interactive Sound Installations and Interactive Installations, as‘Construtiva X’ from 2008 showed at her first international exhibition ‘Las Americas Latinas. Las fatigas del querer’ , at Spazio Oberdan, Milan, Italy.

In these installations are addressed questions about the construction / deconstruction of the image that each one offers to the other and the “narcissism” created by the contemporary world. “The observer is required on their perceptions and led to interact with the work without an imposition, by pure curiosity that the work generates to its mere contact” (part of the text by Reynaldo Roels to the exhibition at Centro Universitário Mariantonia, São Paulo).
