Ana Vaz

  • Ana Vaz examines history and territory in her native Brazil calling attention to the interdependent relationships between colonialism, modernism and the Anthropocene. Her work consisting of filmmaking and performance is a reaction to the human exploitation and swallowing up of land and peoples that have been foundational to the existence of the country through a profusion of portraits of territories, animals, and people. Using speculative and intuitive models, Vaz attempts to bring in perspectives that have been absent from history, learning from the struggles of rural workers and landless laborers in Brazil.
