© 2020 by Bianca Dacosta
Graduated from the School of Decorative Arts in Paris in 2020 in set design and currently an artist studying at Le Fresnoy - Studio National des Arts Contemporains.
Originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Bianca Dacosta develops a practice that starts from everyday experience to observe physical and natural phenomena, perceived by the senses of our bodies. By making this connection, she questions the perception of space, body and nature. The natural and organic movement present in the natural elements inspires him to give shape and rhythm to his performances. She deals with reality, which gives a political dimension to her works. These are explicit references to the dire situation in Brazil, as well as to the climate emergency that affects us all.
She is interested in invisible things, things in transition, to question our present time, the materiality of what we are experiencing. Her work is built around the places where she lives and materializes through multiple devices in which performance, photography, video, sculpture and installation blend.
