  • Ana Mazzei

    POSTPONED Glasgow International Partnership Residency 2020

    Men and narratives, in their inseparable relationships, define Ana Mazzei’s interest. It is from this perspective that her work develops and grows. For Mazzei, art, architecture and landscapes construct, in themselves, a fiction that connects them, resulting in installations, settings and objects.

    Her artworks are like pieces and fragments of myths, lives and fictions that are represented in drawings, videos, sculptures and installations. At other times, her works function as observation devices framing this vast repertoire from a specific point of view. Focusing on a widely experimental practice, the artist appropriates different sensorial materials, such as felt and concrete, connecting to the environments in which she works.

    Ana Mazzei (born in 1979, São Paulo, Brazil) completed a BFA in Visual Arts at the Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado (FAAP) in 2006 and a MA in Visual Poetics at UNICAMP in 2010.

    Recent solo exhibitions include: Drama O’Rama, Sesc Pompeia, Sao Paulo, Brazil (2019); Is-Montage!, Carlos/Ishikawa, London, UK (2019); Antechamber, Green Art Gallery, Dubai, UAE (2018); DRAMAFOBIA, Galeria Jaqueline Martins, São Paulo, Brazil (2017); Ghost Studies, Almine Rech Gallery, New York, USA (2017).

    Ana Mazzei will be working on her major commission for Glasgow International while in residence at Hospitalfield.
