Mariana Nobre Vieira Creative Scholarship

Mariana Nobre Vieira was a multidisciplinary artist whose artistic biography was marked by interventions and collaborations in collectives such as Rabbit Hole (Lisbon), Mina (Lisbon) and Lecken (Berlin). Her performance work is influenced by her academic background (Dance, Economics, Philosophy), but also by autobiographical reflection and experiences in the Lisbon and Berlin nightlife scene, where she lived between 2017 and 2020. In her artistic practice, she intertwined theoretical approaches from post-humanism, queer theory and existentialism. Formally, she favoured the creation of hybrid objects that navigated between performance and installation, building enchanted habitats for the coexistence of diverse subjectivities, beyond her own.

Mariana has developed an artistic research project that she called "A State of Rave" where he expressed the need to think, understand and resignify artistic creation as a state of alienation that refers to the present and to an idea of the collective. It is also from this spirit that the project TRUST COLLECTIVE and this scholarship, believing that this is the continuation of a path for defending diverse ideias from working in community - principles that were always essential for Mariana.
