Dad’s Birthday

With glamorous images of Brazilian soap operas, the artist creates a seemingly fictitious photo novel of her own self. In the stylized encounter of her parents and their videos from the Internet, the artist exhibits influences of North American pop culture in Brazil and the aesthetics “Fake News”. And when Camila was born, Mickey Mouse became 50 years old.

 

Making use of images inspired by the glamour of soap operas, the influence of the pop American culture in Brazil and the so actual theme ‘fake news’, the artist applies the aesthetics of photo novels to tell, by a collage of a material of her parents found in the internet, the fake story was told her when she was a child.
