Brazilian artist, Bianca Dacosta develops a practice that starts from the experience of everyday life to observe physical and natural phenomena, perceived by the senses of our bodies. By making this connection, she questions the perception of space, the body and nature. She bases an essential part of her work on the political, ecological and historical situation of her country. More broadly, the prospect of a collapse of civilization is reflected in her work by attempts to reconcile with nature.
Her practice borrows from multiple techniques, including sculpture and material assemblage, ceramics, installation, photography, video and performance. Maintaining a strong link with scenography and choreography, she often mobilizes her own body or others performers in her works, as ways of transmission of stories and intimacy, places of sensitive experience of the peril of space and nature.
