Bia Monteiro

Bia Monteiro (b. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1976) works with photography, video and installations. She addresses matters of safety and displacement both within domestic space and national borders, as well as environmental concerns, through the use of architecture and historical references.

Her personal experiences as a woman, a mother and an immigrant along with references to globalisation add to the scope of the work. The choice of materials itself is an essential part of her installations.
