Eugênia França

(this page was last updated in June 2022)

Patos de Minas, Brazil, 1970.
Lives and works in Contagem, Brazil.

PIPA Prize 2022 nominee.

Eugênia investigates the human contradictions and ambiguities, especially intolerances and violences related to the inequality of forces and gender. She moves between her artwork and her job as a social worker, which affects her overall perception of the world. She fuses what she sees, hears, understands and feels before the other’s and her own pain. She links and visually embodies her feelings and perceptions so she doesn’t get used to them. She uses the uncertainty and unpredictability of the materials and supplies to build her plastic artwork – which allows her to absorb randomness and incidents that empower her production.
