Graduated in both scenic and visual arts, Renata Andrade, currently Phd student in Arts at the University of Lille, is an artist who refuses to follow the rules. Visual artist and actress, Brazilian and French, white and black, artist and researcher, Renata Andrade has been developing poetic work since 2002 at the border of several fields. Her form of expression, between scenic arts, construction of objects and installations, appears as a reflection of her own identity and her favorite themes stand at the border between the natural and the constructed, the feminine and the masculine, the dominated and dominant, traditional and modern. She started in Brazil and has already exposed in Argentina, China and currently in France, the country where she lives and develops her work.
