Flávia Berindoague

Flávia Berindoague’s works address subjects that intertwine human activities and their effects on social relations and nature, approaching themes such as collective memory, language, temporality, nature, geography, and violence. Born in Brazil, a country with a history of political and social instability, she is interested in events that visualize the tensions of postmodern society. She incorporates various materials articulating memory as a displacement of past into present. In addition, she uses language as a visual construction, and materials that remind us that all memory is recollection. Her interest is not in the act of remembrance, but rather the memory of forgetfulness.

​Flávia Berindoague received her B.F.A. from Escola Guignard in Brazil, a Post Baccalaureate in Contemporary Art from Universidade do Estado de Minas Gerais, Brazil, and a M.F.A. degree from Montclair State University, USA where she was awarded a graduate assistantship. Her work has been exhibited in USA, Europe and South America. Her work is included in public collections such as Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Campinas and Centro Cultural de Curvelo in Brazil. The artist has published two books: if… and The Mourning Without Body.
