Bianca Turner (Brazil, b.1984) is a multimedia artist, holds a BA in ‘Performance Design and Practice’ from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design (2011, London, UK) and a Master of Arts in “Scenography” from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (2013, London, UK).
She exhibits regularly since 2014. A special mention should be made to the individual exhibition “Memory, body as resistence”, at Airez Gallery, Curitiba, 2018; Among her collective exhibitions the most relevant is at Mostra Verbo of Performance, at Vermelho Gallery in São Paulo, Brazil.
Her research is on the subjectivity of memory: Is memory material or immaterial? Is memory embedded in objects? – A quest that doesn’t have the intention to be solved but yet to be the source for many artworks.
‘My work explores the documentation of the ephemeral.
I explore the immaterially of an object or a place; the invisible, the subjective, and the unspeakable.
I think of memory as built in the present rather than something from the past; and I am interested in traces and layers as textures of memory and nostalgia.’
