Waleska Reuter in exclusive video-interview

Waleska Reuter‘s art blends knowledge which flows through the fields of anatomy, psychology, sexuality, politics, and sociology, elements that work as an amalgam to build impacting sculptures. These beings, which come from a peculiar personal imaginary, come to life in terms of bodies, at the same time absent and present. In this video, she answers a question by Cadu: “Where does life start and where does art end?”

“I try to make a connection between what I feel it is like to be a person, to act as a person, and enter the other which is not only a spectator but a human being. To me this is the encounter of life and art – how I see it, so my work gains my soul, and the way you see it, which also goes into my work”.

The Brasília-based artist, whose main media is scultpre, says the aims at observing people’s behaviour rather than her mistakes and successes. “I like working with discomfort. If it affects me and the other, it could be within my work in a generous way.”
