PIPA Prize 2023 nominee

I am an artist, gardener and educator. I live in Moeda, Minas Gerais. At the center of my interests are the visual arts, music, performance and ecology. I work from materials I played with as a child. I revisit stories of my grandmothers and uncles in the rural environment. For example, we used the dry fruit of the jequitibá to make the orange sucker; today, this fruit appears in my works. Not only the concrete raw material, then, but also many memories and affections were filling this experience, in which all things talk to each other. In my creative processes, I appropriate raw materials spontaneously made available by nature and resize them, in order to reveal the voices that are latent in their structures. Interventions in these materials seek to highlight their organic aspect and are conceived as a collaborative process that I carry out in partnership with nature. The paths of art have always crossed in my life and over time I have come to perceive the actor as a singer, the singer as a gardener, the gardener as a visual artist… This whole was building me up. This whole stimulates me, guides me and makes me exist. I cannot specify exactly when I became an artist who struggles with different languages. It’s something that comes to me from my ancestors. It’s something organic. A little bit of everything, a lot together and mixed.
