Luana Vitra

Luana Vitra (Contagem, Brazil, 1995) is a Brazilian visual artist. She grew up in Contagem, an industrial city that made her body live through iron and soot. Raised by a carpenter (father) and a wordsmith (mother), she moves as she prays, searching for survival and healing from the landscapes she inhabits. Vitra understands the body itself as a trap and her actions as micro-politics, which respectively deal with the spatiality evoked, confronted and confused by her work.

Luana Vitra is one of the artists of the exhibition The Silence of Tired Tongues (2022) curated by Raphael Fonseca which takes place from 24 April to 21 August 2022 at Framer Framed, Amsterdam.
