PIPA 2021, 2022 and 2024 nominee

Visual artist, master’s student at the Federal University of Bahia, was born in Cidade Baixa, in Salvador. The artist is interested in the relationships produced between language, conflict, the 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, engravings, texts and objects, her research seeks to create a cosmology around the conflicts of language and body norms, in addition to expanding a geopolitical debate that involves memory, environmental racism, economics of precariousness, ancestral technologies, sexual and gender dissent and the power relations between discourse and words.
