Patrícia Corrêa (Lisbon, Portugal, 1978) is an artist, researcher and curator. Patrícia studied photography at IADE (Creative University, 2002), graduated in Art History (University of Lisbon, 2007), and pursued her studies in the same area specialising in Contemporary Art (University of Lisbon, 2009). Patrícia works with performance, photography, video and installation exploring the fragility of the presence of time, using excerpts of life and memories as a metaphor of an intangible presence. Using different mediums, she builds memory repositories to explore the complexity of memory behaviour itself. She explores memory as a temporal phenomenon that reverberates hybridity on the body, on the mind, and on external beings and objects. By reframing a given memory with her personal narrative, she creates new imagery, new visual emotion, and a new frame for the post visual recollection. She has exhibited and performed in public spaces, galleries, festivals and museums, such as, Grimmuseum (Berlin, Germany), City Museum of Lisbon (Portugal), VI Art and Culture Biennial of São Tomé (São Tomé and Príncipe), BU – Performing Arts Festival (Bangkok, Thailand), Circle of Time Performance Festival at CSW Gallery (Toruń, Poland), WAR<SO>VIE performance festival (Warsaw, Poland), CIPAF – International Performance Festival (Nicosia, Cyprus), 3rd edition of Visual Arts Festival (Bielsko-Biała, Poland), Biennial of Performance Art (Bogotá, Colombia) and National Museum of Contemporary Art (Lisbon, Portugal). Patrícia is based in Brussels (Belgium) and is the founder & curator of YAM Performance Art.
