Ana Vaz

(this page was last updated in June 2022)

Brasilia, Brazil, 1986
Lives and works in Paris, France

PIPA 2017 and 2022 nominee 

Ana Vaz was born in the Brazilian central plateau inhabited by the ghosts buried by the modernist federal capital Brasília. Cerratense by origin and wanderer by choice, Ana lived in the arid lands of central Brazil and southern Australia, in the swamps of northern France and on the eastern shores of the North Atlantic in Portugal. She currently traces her journey between Paris and Brasília. Her filmography activates and questions cinema as an art of the (in)visible and as an instrument capable of dehumanizing the human, expanding its connections and becomings with other forms of life — both other-than-human and spectral. Consequences or expansions of her cinematography, her activities are also incorporated into writing, critical pedagogy, installations or collective walks.
