Debora Ando comes originally from São Paulo, lived in Dublin for thirteen years and has been living in Dortmund since 2019. She received a BA with Honors in Fine Arts from the Universidade de São Paulo and an MA in Visual Arts Practice from the Dún Laoghaire Institute of Arts, Design and Technology (Ireland).
Her works – installations and interventions – concern structures that reflect her considerations and understanding of space and place, and with which she can effectively analyse, reflect and represent the distinction between them. Space is the indefinable, the wild, the unknown, the intangible. Space is immeasurable for our perception. There is no metric unit that can contain its dimensions. As the universe expands, space is in motion. She regards each of her work as a place. A place is a pause in space. A pause is an attempt to enclose and hold onto space. She does not intend to find the truth of the space, but to celebrate its riddle.
