My work comprises several different operations, which are distinct but in dialogue.
On the one hand I make images, in series: drawings, mainly, but also collages and photographs. This iconographic work, and the different ways in which it’s elaborated, are infused with permanent sculptural activity. On the other hand, I design publications that are exclusively comprised of images I myself have produced, and others, taken from books or commissioned from guest artists. Their modes of publication vary between self-publication, collaborations and participations in existing collections. But they’re all part of the same movement: that of creating conditions for narration.

“El año 2013 fui seleccionada para participar en la Universidade de Verão en Rio de Janeiro, instancia que me dio la oportunidad única de participar de un contexto interdisciplinario que incentivó un dialogo abierto y horizontal fomentando otros modos de relacionarnos, trabajar y vivir. A través de esta experiencia, pude notar que la Universidade de Verão por medio de sus metodologías y contenidos, genera una suerte de optimismo crítico, otorgando la posibilidad de acceder a nuevas herramientas analíticas y prácticas para interpretar y construir la realidad. Asimismo, dada mi experiencia vivida en la Universidade de Verão, destaco el espacio que Capacete otorgó a los momentos de esparcimiento compartidos, y la posibilidad de generar lazos afectivos como resultado de la convivencia activa con los otros.”

“Being at Capacete was and continues to be a source of great happiness, fun, adventure and camaraderie. Here art and life are very much intertwined. Rio’s own special madness is an art beyond art and provided a very healthy perspective on the limitations and strengths of frankly being a Gringo. It’s an experience that I carry with me and am always grateful for lucking into.”


Rodrigo García Dutra

Rodrigo constrói uma coleção de fatos, objetos encontrados, presentes e lugares em que esteve para então os trabalhar através de desenho, pintura, fundição de bronze, traçados de carvão , edição de vídeo e arranjo / re-arranjo deles no espaço. Dessa forma reavalia esses momentos ou situações , lançando uma nova luz sobre eles.

“In 2011 I participated in the CAPACETE’s Program for Latin American artists and it really caused great changes in my life. In this residence I met friends who have transformed me deeply and with whom I have been developing artistic projects. Since then, we have come sharing a life, feeding good conversations, discussions and having an intense conviviality. In CAPACETE I learned that art can often spring from a good breakfast, without the need to call it “art”, without setting specific goals for a project, just letting the flow of creation be born happily and spontaneously. No one walks a path alone, the artist is interdependent of the system in which he operates and changes are only possible through actions with peers, understanding the complexity of art beyond the walls of the museum.”
