PIPA 2021 and 2022 nominee.
A visual artist with a bachelor’s degree from the Federal University of Bahia, Rebeca Carapiá was born in Cidade Baixa, in the city of Salvador. She is interested in the relations produced between language, conflict, body and territory, where she creates and organizes a set of practices and reflections through different platforms of exhibition, training and artistic experimentation. Through sculptures, copper on canvas, drawings, installations, prints, texts and objects, her research seeks to create a cosmology around the conflicts of the language and body norms, in addition to expanding a geopolitical debate that involves memory, environmental racism, precariousness economies, ancestral technologies, sexual and gender dissidences and the power relations between speech and word.
