Silvia Pereira

about the author

Sílvia Pereira is an artist who is not based in any specific location; Sílvia currently explores Portugal, Iceland, Japan, and Germany as zones for research. She has a BA/MA degree in fine arts specialising in sculptural behaviours (University of Barcelona) and is currently concluding a post-master degree in artistic research at a.pass, Brussels, and initiating a PhD in artistic studies and mediation of the arts (University FCSH-NOVA, Lisbon). OMNIADVERSUS is her ongoing main artistic practice and research, through which she pursues a constant self-actualisation of the subject by personifying multiple identity orientations. Positioning herself in specific cultural circuits and experiencing a local dérive has become determining and crucial to the development of her body of work. She has exhibited in Germany, Iceland, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Australia, and Japan and her films have been screened in festivals such as Festival International du Court Métrage, Clermont-Ferrand, France, In-Sonora, Madrid, and FILE, Electronic Language International Festival, São Paulo, Brazil, and the MONAFOMA Festival, Australia.
