Adriana is constantly looking for neglected objects and abandoned locations to work with. Resulting in a varied use of materials selected carefully within a very precise palette. Her work has a strong materiality and deepens in dialogues with literature and philosophy.
The components of her work mix art and everyday life, allowing a greater proximity between the artworks and the public. Her projects made in South Korea, Canada, Italy, Sweden, Austria and different cities of Brazil establish indeed a very close relationship with varied communities and their culture, impacting her results.
Adriana Affortunati holds a BA in Visual Arts from the Centro Universitário Belas Artes in São Paulo and studied Philosophy and Contemporary Aesthetics at the State University of Milan, Italy. Adriana was born in São Paulo, Brazil (1982) and currently lives in Krems, Austria.
