I understand art as a space for the elaboration of experiences. The experiences happen in the body from all the physical and animist senses, so there is no privileged media in my work, the visual, the auditory, the sensory, the olfactory, the mobile, the relational, the performative are together and are organized according to the My need to express what happens to myself. The principles that nourish my creative doing are based on elements present in the Afro Brazilian cultural manifestations, so I organize my work based on the concept that the researcher Alejandro Frigerio names as multidimensional performance present in the African American cultural manifestations, and therefore, through images, movements, supports, sounds and relationships, I active to the utmost my presence and the presence of the audience, generating a space of communication. My initial training is contemporary dance, however, I have always sought and continued to seek transit through other artistic languages in the prospect of broadening my creative universe, which has resulted in video performance, performance, photography, installations, etc. aligning myself with the decolonial option, which seeks to transcend the creative categories centered on the European perspective, and recognize the aesthetic epistemology of the global south.

Ross Culverwell

My work attempts to explore a visual language through video. The videos I make express something I am dealing with personally, an internal struggle of some kind that cant be expressed through words or a single image.

When I was still in art school, I experimented with as many different types of mediums as possible so that I could get a good idea of what interested me most. In 2003, after a year of attending a visual arts school, the frontman of a Peruvian punk rock band named “Futuro Incierto” (Uncertain Future) noticed a cardboard robot suit I had made for that year’s annual exhibit and asked me if I wanted to do a video clip for one of his songs, using that same robot suit. The video was shown on the MTVLA channel for many months. During the next four years at school, I started to make more videos including short films in SD until new technologies gave me the opportunity to make them in Full HD quality with no budget at all. My works have always included images of the surreal and the bizarre, within a nightmare-ish context. I have realized that the audiovisual medium is the best way for me to share my visions. The viewer can enjoy the works regardless of their background because dreaming is a universal experience. I use live stop motion techniques with photographs to represent imaginary odd worlds.
