Castiel Vitorino Brasileiro Biography

Artist, writer and psychologist, Castiel Vitorino Brasileiro work transcends from a double dimension: healing in the existential and bodily fields, and the reterritorialization of the body and the spaces in which it circulates and inhabits. Her pieces are articulated between performance, video, photography, installation, situation and pictorial practices, moving in an open spectrum between traditions common to the field of art, healing, encounter, macumba and other psychic-spiritual activities. Her image-ideas, magnetic and stunning, bring high energy intensity, causing cognitive shifts that dilute dichotomies between culture and nature, and discredit the structures that racialise and hijack the fluidity of experiences. Her actions give name to the traumas, so they can finally take their course.

Interweaving a diversity of knowledge, her work suggests transformations and twists of all kinds. And, from these practices, movements and singular rituals emerge, mobilized by the astuteness of the tongue, the swing of the waist and the care of the soul. From its elementary inventiveness for bodies and esoteric trances, actions and elements vibrate in this plane and in the others.

Castiel Vitorino Brasileiro (b. 1996, Vitória, Brazil) lives and works on planet Earth.
