Anna Costa e Silva

Anna Costa e Silva works from situations built between people, who propose reformulations of the social and affective tissues, having the encounter as the main subject. Her projects take place in the intersections between visual and scenic arts, relational practices and cinema and materialize, or not, in installations, films, sounds or ephemeral situations. The artist creates devices that stimulates states of intimacy and strangeness and stretch the boundaries between reality and fiction, self and other, experience and memory.

She holds a Master in Visual Arts from School of Visual Arts, NY, and has received awards such as FOCO Bradesco ArtRio, Funarte Artistic Production Scholarship and American Austrian Foundation Prize for Fine Arts, competing with masters of all American universities. Between 2014 and 2018, she held 10 solo exhibitions, among them “Assíntotas” at Caixa Cultural, “Púrpura” a mobile experience through the city of Rio de Janeiro, “Ofereço Companhia” at Galeria Superfície and “Éter” at Centro Cultural São Paulo, selected among many artists for the exhibition program. She exhibited her work in several collective exhibitions at institutions such as Contemporary Art Center, Vilnius, Art In Odd Places, Interstate Projects, NY, Casa Triângulo, SP, Parque Lage, Galeria do Lago, Casa França Brasil, Oi Futuro, RJ, and participated in the MoMA-NY Inventing Abstraction video show. She was a resident artist at Phosphorus, SP, at the School of Making Thinking, NY and at Salzburg Academy, Austria, and is currently doing an art residency at Pivô, São Paulo. She has works in public and private collections, among them the MAR – Museu de Arte do Rio.

He began his career by studying Cinema and directing short films screened at 40 festivals around the world. He worked as an assistant director for directors such as Cacá Diegues, Jorge Durán and Marcos Prado.
