Performance Art, Mask
Brazil | 2019
A live performance created and executed by the artistic duo Amanda Gatti and Pedro Mendes where the latter perfomed by moving and photographing while blinded by a mask.

An excercise in voyeurism and sensoriality inspired by Surrealist imagery that aimed to both shed a critical light and provoke a rupture on the typical behaviour found in the enviroment of a  nightclub - the place were the performance happened.

Performance Art, Kraftwerk
Brazil | 2019

As a performance created to happen in a nightclub, it takes inspiration from the cult film "Liquid Sky", by Slava Tsukerman. Bringing elements of transformation through makeup, the performer carries with her the head of a mannequin while she regurgitates an ironic text about conservatism, capitalism and the artistic medium.

 
Brazil | 2016
The performance was presented at the Casiere Gallery (Porto Alegre, Brazil) during the ''Escape'' exhibition curated by Fagner Damasceno. Sound installation by sound engineer André Di Napoli. Costume by Sergio Amaro - later exhibited as an installation with a intervention by the artist Pedro Matsuo.


To Escape can also be and encounter with yourself. It's an intimate wound.

Brazil | 2015

A performatic dance inspired by the technological melody of the german band Kraftwerk, merged with an expressionist aesthetic and a strobo-lighted choreography based in slow-motion movements.

The site-specif performance happened a nightclub (Bar Ocidente) and a gallery (Acervo Independente) in the South of Brazil.

Street Performance, Urban Intervention
Brazil | 2015

This project received the prize Funarte de Artes de Rua (Brazilian government's prize for urban arts). The performance intended to show ways to occupy, view, inhabit and live together in the public yards of the city of Porto Alegre, Brazil. 

Through activities that could and that already took place in these yards, we invite spectators to discover and rediscover these spaces, to stay there and come back after the performance.
 
For us, the project was a way of stimulating citizens to get closer to these spaces, to see them as spaces of belonging and, perhaps, to review their relationship of distance with the buildings and also with the public activities of power that take place in these spaces.

undressing the prejudice
Brazil | 2016

An urban performance that took place at the touristic landmark “Ponte de Pedra”, a bridge in Porto Alegre, south Brazil. Through the fragility that a seminude body exposes, we brought to attention the fragile state of public spaces left overlooked.
Lindo demais!
ilha dos amores / island of loves
Brazil | 2013

An urban performance in the city of Porto Alegre, south Brazil, inspired by “The Bathers” by Pierre Auguste Renoir. The performance wanted to bring attention to the central canal “Arroio Dilúvio” that used to be a public leisure area. That was left neglected, and surrounded by rubbish and pollution.
Street Performance
Brazil | 2013 - 2014

The street theatre play was part of the research entitled “Poetics and politics in the Contemporary Street Theater Scene” by Evelise Mendes in the Postgraduate Program in Performing Arts (PPGAC / UFRGS - BR).

In the play, there is the inauguration ceremony of a "false" monument.

multidisciplinary collective
Território de Rupturas is a multidisciplinary collective co-founded by Brazilian artists Amanda Gatti, Gustiele Fistaról and Tiago Gasperin in 2020, who propose to investigate possibilities of creations - digital and/or in person - based on the artistic experiences of each member.

The collective, currently based in Brazil, Germany and the United Kingdom, researches and creates, above all, from the terms “border” and “immigration”, understood as a place of “difference” in the theory of “Dérive” by the Situationist Guy Debord on the act of walking and the concept of “Infraordinary” by Georges Perec, that relates everyday life and art.

Since its foundation, the collective has created several video performances that have been shown in national and international festivals. It also carried out training for research and audiovisual artists, through cultural support funds. Its last action was a Workshop that resulted in a collective drift with participants from several countries in South America and Europe.

short film
An experimental work blurs the lines between film and video art, flirting with the horror cinema and exploring a dreamlike aesthetic marked by symbolic imagery and fragmented editing, as well as an organic and atmospheric soundscape.

 

Inspired by the emblematic feminist horror tale, "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman; the artwork explores themes such as feminism and mental health.

Currently, the project unfolds in new experiments with other formats, such as an art installation, a video dance and a Virtual Reality experience.

vanilla underground 
UK | 2021
16mm short film
Shot on 16mm. The film follows Brendan, a man who struggles with his identity after a sexual encounter with a male prostitute takes an unexpected turn.

 

Vanilla Underground explores the ambiguity of human sexuality  and the thin line between pleasure and violence, specially when these are contained in the same experience or expressed in similar ways.
