Bio

Camila Rhodi - Animated PortraitI research biographical narratives departing from myself, investigating a given community context, browsing through historical sources and engaging audiences through live, video and audio performances, as well as in sound and video installations. Recurrent topics like love, sex, violence, mourning, self-preservation have been used as the content of my works, explored in close connection with references taken from TV & Spectacle culture, Cinema, as well as feminist theories I strive to deal with it in a poetic way, mixed with sarcasm and criticism. In my point of view, personal stories reach universal aspects, connecting the experiences of artist and audience, through identification and mirroring.

I have shown my work in venues like the Parallel Program of Manifesta in Russia, the WRO Art and Media Biennale in Poland, Bienalsur in Argentina and  viennacontemporary, Vienna Parallel and Vienna Art Week in Austria.

I studied Fine Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, Austria and Science of Theater Studies ( ATW ) at Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen in Germany.

I am a trained actress, performance and video artist. Brazilian born, with Austrian nationality and Italian roots.

I also have  Post-graduation in extension studies in Aesthetics at UNIRIO and graduation in Drama studies at Escola Estadual de Teatro Martins Penna in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
