Rivane Neuenschwander’s richly varied oeuvre is marked by a strong interest in
cultural, psychological and sociological questions, processes in nature and global interconnections.

Her works are possessed of a profoundly philosophical way of seeing things in which the human perspective is qualified by the passage of time, the power of wind or the trail of a snail. In developing her works, the artist often initiates self-organising, autonomous processes, with animals such as snails, ants or spiders, or even rain, often taking on the role of formative protagonists. At the same time, in her participatory installations she makes room for the potential of human interaction, be it by means of play, experimentation or spontaneous actions. In her work, Neuenschwander probes the conditions of life.

Rivane Neuenschwander (b. 1967 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil) lives and works in São Paulo.
