About the human

Alice Brida creates artworks through photos and drawings. She tries to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations. Her works never show the complete structure. By examining the ambiguity and origination via retakes and variations, she touches various overlapping themes and strategies. Several reoccurring subject matter can be recognised, such as the relation with popular culture and media, working with repetition, provocation and the investigation of the process of expectations. Her work urge us to renegotiate art as being part of a reactive or – at times – autistic medium, commenting on oppressing themes in our contemporary society. Alice Brida currently lives and works in Porto.
