Tassia Quirino

b 1989 São Paulo, Brazil. Lives and works in Berlin.


Working across photography, video and installation, Tassia explores the relation between light, colour and space and how it affects our perception. Through over or underexposing images, erasing information, distorting forms, multiplying pictures or adding colours, she seeks to disfigure and collapse viewers sense of reality.  

In her current body of work she investigates how humans perceive colours by photographing a white screen. Screens are designed considering how the brain processes information captured by our eyes. How does it look for the eye of a camera? How many different images can be captured from a white screen? How much time do we spend staring at screens?


Tassia studied Film at FAAP University (2011). She has directed three short movies: "Strangers" (2009), made during the directing course at USC (University of Southern California) in Los Angeles; the documentary "Thread in Blue" (2011), awarded at the Asolo Art Film Festival (Italy) and selected in several film festivals; "Home Sweet Home" (2014), selected to Cinerama BC International Film Festival (2014) and awarded at The Walkers Festival (São Paulo). Since the beginning of her film career, Tassia has developed several projects in partnership with artists. Thread in Blue, for instance, follows the urban intervention made by Regina Silveira - recognized Brazilian artist - on the facade of MASP (São Paulo Museum of Art). It’s been a year since Tassia started her career as a visual artist and is now taking part in group exhibitions. She has just finished an artist’s residency program at Picture Berlin (July-August 2017).
