Selena de Carvalho
Throughout my practice I seek out materials and environments that have weathered various forms of disturbance, positioning myself in the role of both witness and interpreter. These sites and places are geographically disparate, but are connected via capitalist industrial threads, forms of convergent evolutions, migration paths or political narratives, acknowledging the long rich evolution of earth . My practice responds to and presents a provocation to tune in to the environment, to remember that we are part of an interconnected interdependent web of complexity. In various modes the works seek to amplify the voices of more-than-human entities. Acts and gestures of solidarity re-frame culturally engendered hierarchies of importance, acknowledging the diverse world making abilities of ecological diversity of which we are all enmeshed.
