Fake Nature

Fake Nature is an undisciplined research project, post-medium transdisciplinary transnational practice initiated by Ana Monteiro. is proposed to operate as a platform for collective experiences, playing around constructions: nature, culture, reality, fiction, human, not human.
Exploration of expanded, hybrid, traversed bodies.
Research on post-humanism as a cross-field between: futurology, contemporary art, philosophy, science fiction. The post-human as a speculative being seeks to reconfigure relationships of the human in/with the world.
This research has mutated through multiple encounters: sensory and therapeutic objects (Lygia Clark), cyborg (Donna Haraway), clothing as a mask, witch dance (Mary Wigman), anthropophagy (Oswald de Andrade), perspectivism (Viveiros de castro), the neo-animism (Ruy Duarte de Carvalho), caribbean carnival, indigenous cosmopolitics, feminist science fiction ...
Navigating different contexts, from Montevideo, passing through Santiago de Chile, Lisbon, Fort-de-France to Paris and interwoven with countless friends and accomplices.
