Aleta Valente

Rio de Janeiro, RJ, 1986. – Lives and works in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Represented by A Gentil Carioca galery.
PIPA Prize 2017 and 2019 nominee.

Aleta converges subject and support, thesis and test tube, artist and activist, model and photographer, medic and monster, muse and anti-muse. It opens your body, your flesh, your home, your bed, your bathroom, your friends, your daily life, re-signifying and testing stereotypes, taboos, the limits of the network and your own. It makes online tools ideological tools, of its body, stage, manifesto and scapegoat, inquiring, interfering and pinning forms of power and control, as well as the instituted models of its representations.
