Flávia Berindoague’s works address subjects like collective memory, violence and oblivion. Born in Brazil, a country with a history of political and social instability, she uses metafictional narratives as a way to visualize the tensions of postmodern society. Her sculptural meditations and installations articulate memory as a displacement of past into present. In addition, she uses language as a visual construction, and materials that remind us that all memory is re-collection. Her interest is not in the act of remembrance, but rather the memory of forgetfulness.
Berindoague received her B.F.A. from Escola Guignard in Brazil, a Post Baccalaureate in Contemporary Art from Universidade do Estado de Minas Gerais, Brazil, and an M.F.A. degree from Montclair State University, where she was awarded a graduate assistantship. In 2012, she received the Individual Artist Grant from Lei Municipal de Incentivo a Cultura in Brazil. Her work has been exhibited internationally including New York, New Jersey, the United Kingdom, Brazil, and she is included in public collections such as Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Campinas and Centro Cultural de Curvelo in Brazil. The artist has recently published two books: if… and The Mourning Without Body.
