Lost + Found
This presentation is about feeling lost, be it in the creative process, in social circles or in life in general. Through my own experience and while reading a book for one of my classes I noticed how much this subject is not spoken about from the perspective of embracing it, only avoiding it. Getting lost is based on how good you are in being uncomfortable, and how much of an essential part of the creative process it is.
Bea is a brazillian photographer and film-maker based in Berlin. She moved here in search of new possibilities for her photography. Curiosity is what drives Bea through her artistic research. Bea’s projects revolve around a few recurring subjects such as the female body and its expression, intimacy, secrets, rumors and the way her own performative presence is revealed through self-portraits. Early studies in psychology added an autobiographical layer to her work, allowing Bea’s views on mental health and personal experiences to surface in her images.
