(this page was last updated in January 2018)

Denver, Colorado, USA, 1978.
Lives and works in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

PIPA 2010 nominee.

Joana Traub Csekö creates mechanisms intrinsic to the operation of their images, like secrets, which attract and communicate, but simultaneously disarm the viewer’s gaze. Images dissenters, which want from our view the time of aim, look, and not the intermittent and fragmented attention of everyday imagery in which we are immersed.
She is a member of the PY Group, through which conceived and coordinated exhibitions / events such as the Pyrata (2005), Pylar (2006) and FEBEARio (2008).

In the artist’s practice, the photography becomes a possible way of being in touch with the contemporary society, to make visible, reveal, through the capture and subsequent engendering the real, aspects of our surrounding environment both physical and symbolic.
