My name is Silvia and I am a visual artist and cultural producer from Brazil, brought up in South London since 1989. I live and work in London where I bring up my seven-year-old son.
When I returned to the city of birth in 2007, I began to work intermittently between the two countries I call home and with the support of an international network of collaborators from the art, sciences and humanities , I helped realize a number of projects, oriented by the climate change debate, human rights and social justice.
Being welcomed by a ‘school of the south’in Latin America, began a process of reconciliating knowledge gaps between the UK and Brazil. A period formalised with the completion of a Master’s degree, awarded in 2018, in Culture and Territorialities from the Fluminense Federal University of Brazil (PPCULT) which focused on my practice-led research on Artists’ residencies. Recommended for publication. I was previously trained at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design (BA Fine Art) on Charing Cross Road and Wimbledon School of Art on Palmerston Road. Further to specialisations in Drawing and Critical Theory received at Escola de Artes Visuais Parque Lage in Rio de Janeiro.
Throughout my trajectory, I have also worked on several published translations of specialized literature including academic papers, critical essays, as well work in film and TV broadcast productions, facilitating crews with on-location filming, onscreen translations, and subtitling. My specialism being in the fields of Visual Arts, Digital Culture, Social Sciences, International Development and Human Rights.
