Luana grew up in Contagem, an industrial city that made her body live through iron and soot. Raised by a carpenter (father) and a wordsmith (mother), she moves as she prays, searching for the survival and the healing of the landscapes she inhabits. Luana understands the body itself as a trap, and her actions as micropolitics that deal with the spatiality that her work evokes, confronts and confuses.
