Luiza Prado

ARTIST STATEMENT

b 1988 Lives and works in Berlin.

Specialised in photography, mix-media, performance, noise, video and installation. 

I define my work as trans-disciplinary by the integration and search for solutions through the intersection between art and sciences. Despite having an undefined horizon, they integrate, organize and merge, keeping the body as the character that transitions between macro and micro, public and private. 

The body becomes pivotal in an aesthetics full of rituals and ancestral signs, keeping it close to the material that constitutes, this same material that stimulates the denial and disgust. I consider this composition a developer mechanism of an aesthetics considered alternative, expanded and a lot of times organic, processing in platforms in times traditional and technical; fluids, blood, remains, oxidation, putrefaction and recycling. 

The feminine, the (de)colonization, deconstruction of privileges, syncretism, indigenous issues, gender, politics and psychosis – these subjects, among others, are frequent in my work that is triggered by my own biography. 

Just like insanity, art wasn’t a choice, it was a need. I view in art a kind of resistance and liberation, a reprocessing method of multiple perspectives without developmental limits, questioning and mostly inclusive.
