Manuela Costa Silva develops her poetic production by drinking from the deep waters of the unconscious, through which dream images and the archetypal organism remain and still manifest themselves amid the play of light and shadow of consciousness. Manuela establishes a mirroring between inner and outer nature, matter and symbol become one speaking through their own reasoning, the dreamlike, the archetypal and the imaginary, ways of turning the intangible into tangible. Crossing the prism of genre through the material and immaterial, the artist articulates nature and supernature, combining life and death, dream and reality, poison and cure, sacred and profane, desire and magic in an unlikely weave of contemporary mythologies.
