ABOUT THE ARTIST
Debora Hirsch extracts imagery from original sources to emphasize meanings that would have been, otherwise, overlooked by viewers. In Firmamento, Hirsch creates semi-abstract paintings that evoke imagery stemming from colonial décor and architecture to a video showing architectural sites related to colonialism––these images are then disturbed by erratic, algorithmic-controlled, digital elements. Hirsch received her MSc in Industrial Engineering from the University of São Paulo and an MBA from Bocconi University in Milan. She was artist-in-residence at RU, Residency Unlimited (NY) and has shown her work at institutions such as the Anthology Film Archives (NY), WhiteBox (NY), MARS (Milan), Centro Cultural FIESP (SP), and MuBE (SP).
