Sallisa Rosa_facas feitas - Knives Made series

Sallisa Rosa – Facas Feitas (Knives Made) series (2018- ongoing)

Sallisa Rosa works with art as a path between intuitive experiences, fiction, territory and nature. Her practice circulates between photography, video, and installations; her production is often achieved through collaborative and participatory formats, and stems from her experience as an indigenous person in urban spaces. Rosa rejects the image of indigenous peoples as frozen in time, as well as the treatments traditionally attributed to indigenous people by visual arts and anthropology. Her works address themes of identity and fiction, futurism, nature and decolonization of museum spaces. By bringing together ancestral and futurist references, Rosa takes a stand against an overpowering present, where a politics of erasure of indigenous communities has become the norm.
