BRUNA MAYER

Brazil

Working predominantly with video and installation art, I perceive my work as a way to give shape, form and visibility to the hidden impulses and states found within the body. Like the inner struggles of trying to connect with the deepest and most intimate parts of one’s self, in searching for who I am. A quest for missing aspects of the self that might have been neglected or put aside, but that rather when denied, grow stronger, infiltrating and expanding under the surface. Throughout my artistic practice, I seek ways to expose these secluded, yet essential aspects of the self, trying to visualize that which we cannot see. In its visual, temporal and spatial qualities, my work is an invitation for viewers to connect with their most intimate self, and perhaps access neglected inner conditions.

Project

The project consists in investigating the space in between the interior and exterior of the body, exploring its physical, spatial and temporal characteristics. The concept is driven by my curiosity of understanding how a new idea, a concept, a thought or an emotion can penetrate our minds and bodies creating new space. Inversely, a curiosity of how it is possible for an internal and invisible sensation to be externalized becoming visible to the outside. The project was inspired by the mucous membrane, which is a thin, wet, layer of skin that sits on an internal organ, lining all body passages that have direct or indirect contact with the exterior, like the mouth, nose, vagina and urethra, and produce mucus as a form of protection. Using the body or what evokes as the viscous condition of the body, to investigate and question this place of accessibility, collision, as well as separation between the exterior and the interior.
