Artists in Residence
02.01.2020 - 31.03.2020

Lives and works in Juiz de Fora, Minas Gerais (MG). He is currently doing his MA in Art, Culture and Languages at UFJF (Federal University of Juiz de Fora – MG); also holds a postgraduate degree in Scenography and Expography from UVA (Veiga de Almeida University – Rio de Janeiro).

Brandão develops practical-theoretical research in the area of construction of objects and poetic actions, seeking to reach intimacies through the communication of the sensitive. He uses traditions as raw materials, subverting them and proposing encounters and sharing of personalities as concepts. His work is materialized by ambiguities, dysfunctions, hazards. The object is the body and the dialogue is the matter.

His first artistic action was the installation “Ex-votos” (2016), which consisted of a plaster feather mat built in the streets of the city center in Juiz de Fora. This work travelled to many cities and it was last shown at the Gaia Gallery – UNICAMP (University of Campinas – São Paulo) in 2019.
