Ana Rita de Faria Antonio

(PT/NOR, March 2019)

Ana Rita António (1980) is a multidisciplinary visual artist. - She holds a Master degree from Bergen National Academy of Arts and a Diploma from the Design Lab department at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam.

By using and composing analogies between the trivial and random, my work utters simultaneously the bold and unexpected with a great feeling for improvisation, self-sufficiency and temporality - Directly or indirectly, in a concrete or poetic way, avoiding dominant economic strategies and production models. Questioning the coerciveness that derives from the more profound meaning and the superficial aesthetic appearance of an everyday context, object or image.

Componer analogías entre lo trivial y lo aleatorio. En mi trabajo me interesa cuestionar el carácter coercitivo de la apariencia estética superficial de un contexto, objeto o imagen cotidianos.
