BIO



My name is Ana Rita Manuel I was born in 1980, Caldas da Rainha in Portugal. In 2007 I finished my degree in Visual Art at ESAD,cr, Caldas da Rainha, Portugal. Since 2009 I live and work in Berlin, Germany.

My artistic practice is multidisciplinary using different media such as video, drawing, sculpture,installation, sound and performance. My work opens visual and physical experiences and is mostly producedas place and context specific. It brings up intuitive and historical memories from the place where the work is produced or from where the used materials come from. Through art I pursue reflections on the changing of landscape and I question political choices that affect our relations to nature.
