Ana Mazzei was born in 1980, in São Paulo (Brazil), where she lives and works.
She has completed a BFA at Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado (FAAP) and a MA in Visual Poetics at UNICAMP. In 2011/12 she was a participant in the Independent Study Program at Escola São Paulo (PIESP) directed by Adriano Pedrosa. In 2013 she was selected for the artistic Residence at Cité des Arts - Paris with a scholarship from FAAP.
With a pluralistic practice that challenges and explores the structures, materiality and histories of representation and visuality, often in relation to the distinction between the theatrical and the real in contemporary life. Mazzei's work spans a broad range of media that creates playful, ephemeral and often participatory artworks including sculpture, photography, prints, video and sound, which normally converge in installations. From walking through markets to driving down the road - as integral parts of her production: to understand that everyday we are performing on every level and we are always in costume shifting perception and drawing attention to the act of seeing. Inspired by the educational ideas of Paulo Freire and Augusto Boal authors of The Pedagogy of the Oppressed and The Theatre of the Oppressed. Mazzei's replayed things, roles, movements, patterns, repeated words and sentences, reanimated feelings. Ana is a member and founder of Teatro Facada.
