Sofia Caesar. Brazil, 1989

The body motion is central to the videos, performances, and installations she makes. Sofia often engage her own body and the public’s language, systems of control, or the camera, and how these can be played with. More recently, the focus of her work has been on the flexibilization of systems of control, the ambivalence between work and play, and the possibilities of liberation of the body from these systems. In general, she looks for moments when bodies escape the forces that control them, creating a language of their own. Structures that act upon her becomes a track for running; the sunset, a time to sit still. Sometimes this happens in a process of translation and an interview renders a score for a collective reading, or an archival film is transformed into a trajectory on the floor, or a working contract morphs into an object to be manipulated. With these formal transformations her work reveals how relations of control act upon the body, but mostly, it redistributes and plays with these relation.
