PIPA Prize 2023 nominee

Artist and researcher, she graduated in Psychology at FUMEC University and is a specialist in Visual Arts as a technician at the Interscholar Center of Culture, Art, Languages ​​and Technologies (CICALT, both in the city of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais). From a family of washerwomen, while granddaughter of Dinorá and daughter of Sueli, she seeks through her multi-artistic works to reframe narratives, listen more than speak and let herself be affected and create from what she observes.

Pluralistic, her work goes through the crossroads of performance, painting, audiovisual and installation. The artist proposes in her research to heal time, revolving around the ethnographies of the rite as a time and space for the development of symbols, signs and iconographies of body-territory relations on the edges of the Rio das Velhas.
