Mudesto investigates the possibility of an artistic and political occupation of the body, using live performance to deconstruct and heal through rituals that reflect queer habits and collective trauma. Especially dealing with the phenomenology of being in-between environments, analyzing binary physical and conceptual dualities, such as pleasure and pain, self and non-self, through the re-configuration of the body as a critical tool that responds to environment triggers. Mudesto has lived and worked in many countries such as Bulgaria, Serbia, Brazil, Switzerland, Germany and Austria, where she took part in several residencies, performances and exhibitions.
Flávia Mudesto (born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil) is currently working with Audio-Visual & Performances. She is studying at the academy of fine arts in Vienna.
