Maria Lucia Cruz Correia
Correia's artistic work speaks her deep engagement for environmental crises and climate justice. She reacts to the ecological crimes of our times by bringing audiences into a participatory environments that connects the artistic with the voices of scientists, activists and lawyers. Correia provides a profoundly embodied ecological practice that at the same time moves away from a humanistic species- centred perspective, and starts from the idea of a complex ecological community, incorporating humans and non-humans, as a reality in which the visitor-spectator is profoundly connected to a ‘more-than-human-world. Most of her projects are participatory articulations as temporary and autonomous platforms, creating moments of disruption and harmony between seemingly disparate bodies of knowledge, resilience, value systems and restoration.
