PIPA 2013 and 2017 nominee.

The work of Celina Portella permeates the universe of the plastic arts and dance. This artist establishes dialogues among architecture, cinema, performance and finally sculpture, characterizing her research in the fields of representation of the body and its relationship with space. Frequently using her own body as a subject for experiments, Celina blends almost craft-like practices in videos, photographs or photo-objects that challenge the characteristics of each support and the perceptions of the observer.
