Christus Nóbrega has been exploring the image through the exceptionality of its character of vertigo, raising the suspicion of its relation of immanence with our world. In speaking of worlds, apparently, his or others’ that cross him, he explores compostable images in his transition between photography, photo-object, video, and computational art.

Among the issues that permeate him are the body, as the epitome of the artist subject and his condition of a creator. He is also interested in collective research methodologies. This is the case of the “Sudário” (2013) in which the artist developed with a team of doctors and chemists an inkjet print cartridge with his own blood. With it, he prints the plants of ritual symbolism of protection and problematizes the relations of power of the State on the body.
