Lives and works in Berlin – Germany
Fernanda Figueiredo studied Architecture and Urbanism at Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie and Visual Arts at Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado in São Paulo. From 2005 on she worked actively in a collaborative duo in São Paulo, drawing and painting being the media that best reflect her artistic production. In 2015, when she moved to Berlin, she started to pursue her solo career. She began then to investigate the process of building Brazilian nationality in the 20th century and the role of visual arts, architecture, landscaping and design in these events. She has exhibited at institutions such as MAM – Rio de Janeiro, MAM – Bahia, Galerie im Körnerpark and Kunstquartier Bethanien in Berlin; she has also received several awards, including Programa Rede Nacional Funarte de Artes Visuais, Goldrausch Künstlerinnenprojekt Stipendium from the Berliner Senat and Europäischen Sozialfonds, and from Jakob und Emma Windler-Stiftung for an artist residency in Switzerland in 2021. Her work is represented in private collections and in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro.
