Interview: Mariana Branco
Luca Curci talks with Mariana Branco during the 16th Edition of VENICE INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2022, at Palazzo Bembo.
She defines herself as a great seeker, from earth to spirit. She’s an artist, author and energy therapist. From 1994, She studied Communication at UFPR until 1998 and started her career in college. She worked in advertising agencies, but then came the cinema her life. And with this passion, she made films in Curitiba_PR and a season at Escola de Cine y Tv de Cuba. Then She went on to study in the United States, at the University of Southern California and the New York Film Academy. In 2000, she return to Brazil and create a communication company. At the same time, digital art crossed her life and with that, the immersion in Art in its origin was born. She studied a postgraduate course in art History and the final result of it was my first book: ludicidarte virtual. She produces Interactive art in immersive environments. She participated in Fairs, Events, Public Notices and Art Exhibitions and received some Awards related to the theme. In 2014, she created a great art/installation that lasted seven years, with the theme: we are energy-matter. She developed an art project called #attitudeyoga and with him, I worked on three fronts. Art, Communication and Yoga. She travelled to different countries taking the meeting with the being. Recently, in 2022 she developed works of art in painting on canvas and paper and Ink on paper, but in the same way, the theme is there, with other supports. In this way, with all that, she developed what she call creative energy immersion.
