Ana Hupe is from Rio de Janeiro, BR, lives in Berlin.
Rescues of forgotten, erased or hidden histories of the present are told in installations with multiple narratives. The energetic points generated by the encounter between different cultures and that carry the power to explode are departing points for the works. From the explosion, hybrid forms are born. The power relations intrinsic to these collisions are underlined. Historical background situations emerge to the foreground. What was forgotten or compressed is unpacked, to question and rewrite erasures. By train, bus, plane, bicycle. At museums, libraries, religious houses, gardens. The corners, constitue essential part of this research in displacement. Coming and going to decolonize the body and the unconscious, to build bridges, triangles, nameless geometric shapes that connect the desires of the global south.Education2019.
