“Juliana Notari has created a set of artworks that face her singularities, passing through biography, confession, catharsis and relational practices. By using several different focuses and modes of operation, traumas, desires, fantasies, and fears are re-inserted in performances, videos, installations, and objects, establishing relationships between subjectivities (specially through the links between artist-work-public), which, in turn, consist of the central axis in the artist’s work. And thus Notari joins a small group of artists whose work refers less to art than to human nature.”
Clarissa Diniz, 2011
Artist, Visual Arts doctoral student and master’s graduate from PPGARTES/UERJ, undergraduate from UFPE (2003). For the past six years, Notari has been working and living in Belém – PA, Rio de Janeiro – RJ and Recife – PE. Artist and researcher of the Arts, her work deals in diverse media (installation, performance, photography, drawing, objects and videos) in a multidisciplinary approach.
Her visual research has created a body of work that face their singularities, transiting between biography, confessionals, the cathartic and relational practices. With varying emphasis and modus operandi, traumas, desires, fantasies and fears are re-inserted in her artwork, instituting inter-subjective relations that, in turn, make up the central axis of the artist’s body of work.
Notari has been part of national and international exhibitions, awarded and in artist-in-residence programs, and her artwork is in both public and private collections. Amongst those, a few select are: PIPA Prize 2018 nominee, Prêmio do Salão Arte Pará – 2014, Prêmio Funarte – Mulheres nas Artes Visuais – 2013 and Prêmio Bolsa de pesquisa no Salão de Arte Contemporânea de Pernambuco – 2004.
