Anannindeua, Brazil, 1988.
Lives and works in Natal, Brazil.
Represented by Janaina Torres Galery.

PIPA 2021 nominee.

The artist starts from fiction, non-linear temporalities, ancestral memories and the recreation of worlds through resignified image fragments. Using photographs collage, made analogically or digitally, she appropriates images found in personal files, thrift shopping and search websites for the creation and reconnection of ancestral memories, in a process of decolonizing the image, the look and the photographic language. The symbolic significance of portraits of different peoples and ethnicities, landscapes and astronomical elements are mixed with residues, traces, pixels and granulations of files of different resolutions. She has works exhibited in physical and digital media in Brazil, Colombia and Spain and in 2020 she won the Margem Fotografica Potiguar Award.
