Ana Paula Mathias

ANA PAULA MATHIAS is a visual artist born in Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil. After completing her studies in social communication at the PUC, she specialized professionally in the field of artistic management. Her projects evolve at the interface between transkino film and the visual arts. She currently works with film art and graphic design. Since 2015 she has been researching the topic of knowledge production from a decolonial perspective with a focus on questions of gender, race and African descent. Based on this research, her artistic activity is guided by political and philosophical considerations. Understanding her works as poetic art, she tries to conceptualize an experience based on mental and psychological experimentation. She investigates performative dispositives that allow optical and acoustic images to be experienced as aesthetic and narrative language. Her works range from video art and video installations to videography and hybrid cinema.
