Patricia Werneck Ribas (1972)

Lives in Amsterdam. Works in Amsterdam.

Patricia Werneck Ribas is a visual artist born in Brazil and based in Amsterdam (NL). Working mainly with lens based media, she investigates notions of identity relating to gender, race, nationality and other factors that define us. In her videos and photographs she reminds us of how constructed our life spheres really are by investigating the relations between the body and its surroundings. Sometimes this environment is a social one. In other cases it is a physical one and sometimes we are surrounded more by our expectations than anything else .She points out how we construct our looks, the idea of home and belonging and our notions of sexuality, danger and desire. P.W. Ribas has a BFA in Audio Visual Arts (VAV) from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and she has participated in several shows and screenings in The Netherlands and abroad.
