Born in Mexico in 1993 into a Chilean family, Catalina Covacevich is a visual artist trained in philosophy and the visual arts. She works in Sao Paulo, mainly in the fields of painting, collage, performance, and installation.
Multidisciplinary artist, she appropriates different practices to reflect on various current and personal subjects. Through collage, she creates a game where pieces of universes found by chance come together to tell a story in a different context. Photography and performance, considered by the artist as more intimate mediums, allow him to address contemporary issues such as migration and the relationship between body and mind. Painting is for her a more intuitive process. Inspired by the study of prehistoric art and the forms and symbols found in caves and stones, she lets herself be carried away by the material to create textures, colors, sensations.
Always intrigued by the things we carry across borders, she develops an artistic reflection on what we keep with us when leaving our country. For her, what we don't forget is what defines us culturally.
