Bruna Mibielli
             Biography


I was born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, a city surrounded by mountains. It was there where I started my career, in 2004, working mainly with photography and sculpture. Technique isn’t a definitive point of my art, so I rather focus on my topics: Memory and, more recently, Time. I propose myself to think over how people remember, what one may remember in certain circumstances, what is memory in contemporaneity, how images can trigger remembrances, or how the latest are faded on memory. The most interesting potency of memory for me is forgetfulness and, derived from this, I understand memory always as a machine of invention.

In 2011, I moved to Austria. I found there my own world and origins through the outsider point of view, inherent of my condition as a foreigner. This was a real challenge, a tough experience, I would say. Since 2013, I work as a researcher with the group LINHA: grupo de estudos sobre o desenho e a palavra. In 2014, I completed a master course at the Kunstuniversität Linz, Austria, and attended some courses at the philosophy department at Karl Franzens Universität Graz, Austria, and at the Internationale Sommerakademie für Bildende Kunst Salzburg, Austria.

Between 2015 and 2019, I developed my artistic and research works as part of my PhD at Universidade de Coimbra, Portugal. There I made several projects in cooperation with my colleagues and I also got my first prize with the artwork “Arquivo Zero”, a sculpture, at the XIX Bienal International de Arte de Cerveira (PT). On April, 2019 I moved back to Brazil. I miss already the smell of the portuguese air.
