The body is Adriana Barreto’s principal material in her movement-based works, acting as an agent in the production of phenomenological and social space. In her performance What Can a Body Do?, dancers remove pieces of tape stuck to their black-clad bodies and affix them to the surroundings. They then use the pieces as nodes for linear chalk drawings. With each action, there is a shift in rhythm; the dancers become increasingly aware of their movement in space as they leave explicit traces behind. Barreto has worked in a variety of media, including painting and sculpture, and circulates her performance work as videos and photographs. Barreto is a 2015 Venice Biennale participant.
