PIPA Prize 2023 nominee

The works take place in drawings, videos, actions, and associations between objects that arise from the action of latent drawing in the world. Daniela reflects about and experiments with the daily writing force – the act of inscribing or graphing –, the atmospheres of words and their instruments. She is interested in the attempts of small impossible tasks, as well as the displacements of meanings, territories and forces that involve the need for inscription of beings – individually and collectively – on the surfaces of everyday life and its reverberations. She understands the field of art as permeable, changing, and not dissociable from her action and thought in education. She sees drawing as a place for action, as a possibility for transforming relationships with lines (imaginary, visual, virtual or concrete), with objects and their deviations from function, with events and their lines of force.

Daniela Seixas is an artist and educator. She experiments with artistic works in different media and conducts daily experiments in education, with special attention to the relationship with drawing/writing. She studied Visual Arts at the Rio de Janeiro State University (UERJ) and has a master’s degree in Contemporary Artistic Processes from the same institution. She teaches Basic Education and the Bachelor of Arts course at the Application Institute Fernando Rodrigues da Silveira (CAp-UERJ), and works in several workshops, educational extension projects, and free art courses for children and young people (EAV-Parque Lage).
