Lives and works in Núcleo Bandeirante, Brazil.

PIPA Prize 2022 nominee.

Fernanda Azou’s artistic research arises from observations of generational behavior, focusing on the self-destructive actions of young adults. Appropriating the cinematographic term “Gore”, the artist is guided by the feeling of impotence and approaches violence, not as an idealization of catastrophe, but as a representation of the abject side of reality. Azou has been working as a visual artist since 2018, the same year that she participated in the Delphian Open Call exhibition at the Delphian Gallery in London, UK. In 2019, she was selected by the II Vera Brant Contemporary Art Award to participate in an artistic residency at Casa Niemeyer and, in the same year, she participated in the 24th Salão Anapolino de Arte and was one of the awarded artists. In 2020, she participated in the 45th Salão de Artes de Ribeirão Preto and received the acquisition award. In 2021, she held her solo exhibition “@“ at the Museu de Arte de Ribeirão Preto. Her works are in public collections such as the National Museum of Brasília, the Anapolis Museum of Art, the Ribeirão Preto Museum of Art and the Culture House of Latin America.
