Rubiane Maia

Rubiane Maia is a Brazilian visual artist based between Folkestone, UK and Vitoria, Brazil. She completed a degree in Visual Arts and a Master degree in Institutional Psychology at Federal University of Espírito Santo, Brazil. Her artwork is an hybrid practice across performance, video, installation and writing, occasionally flirting with drawing, painting and collage. In 2016, she worked on the conceptual project titled “Preparation for Aerial Exercise, the Desert and the Mountain” which required her to travel to high landscapes of Uyuni (Bolivia), Pico da Bandeira (Espírito Santo/Minas Gerais, BRA) and Monte Roraima (Roraima, BRA/Santa Helena de Uyarén, VEN). In the same year she completed her second short film titled “ÁDITO.” Since 2018 she has been working on the creation of an ongoing project called “Book-Performance”, composed by a series of actions devised in response to specific autobiographical texts particularly influenced by personal experiences of racism and misogyny. Currently, she is part of the international collective “Speculative Landscapes”, a group of four women which, since 2020, has been working on systemic questions about what else institutions can be, when shaped not from stories of violence, segmentation, and extractions in the territories.
