Vanessa da Silva lives and works in London and is a graduate of the Royal College of Art. She explores the human experience of migration and displacement using a vocabulary of biomorphic curves. Ranging across sculpture, installation, and performance, da Silva weaves the personal with the political. Informed by her experience growing up in São Paulo and moving to London in the early 2000s, she reflects upon her Brazilian identity and sense of otherness while living in the UK long term.
Da Silva has exhibited internationally and looks forward to upcoming projects in May and June 2022 at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, UK and La Casa Encendida, Madrid. Recent exhibitions include the Frieze Sculpture Park, Regents Park, London, 2021; Mamão com Açúcar, Artíssima, Turin, 2021; and The Inner Rhythm of the Collective, Lungley Gallery, London, 2021.
