Daughter of the mysterious entrails of mother Bahia, Ventura Profana prophesies multiplication and abundant black, indigenous and travesti life. Doctrinated in Baptist temples, she is a missionary pastor, evangelist singer, writer, composer and visual artist, whose practice is rooted in researching the implications and methodologies of deuteronomism in Brazil and abroad, through the spread of neo-Pentecostal churches. Praises, like the sting of a dagger licked with wax and rust in Pharisees’ hearts.
