Bel Falleiros has worked across the world, from Sao Paulo, to Rome and Berlin, thinking about what constitutes the identity of cityscapes or landscapes from a woman’s point of view.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
With an architecture degree from FAU-USP, Brazil, Bel Falleiros investigates the relationship between land, place, and identity. She was recently a resident at the Burnside Farm Detroit, where she created an earth-work that is a gathering space for activities such as healing, meditation, and celebration of difference. For a residency in Pecos, New Mexico, Bel created a site-specific work that dialogued with the sacred landscape of the national park, reflecting on the cultural and natural presences of the site. Bel’s work has been featured in exhibitions at the Caixa Cultural São Paulo, the Instituto Tomie Ohtake, Projeto Fidalga, Emma Thomas Gallery, the Kreuzberg Pavillion in Berlin, and the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center. Bel is also the founder of .Aurora, an art space located in Sao Paulo’s historic district.
