[Born in Recife – PE, 1975]
“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.”
Artist and researcher in the field of arts, she holds a doctorate and master’s degree in Visual Arts from the PPGARTES/UERJ, works with the most diverse languages (installations, performances, videos, photographs, drawings and objects) with 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: artist finalist of the 7th edition of the Prêmio Indústria Nacional Marcantonio Vilaça – 2019 (Brazil), PIPA Prize 2019 and 2018 nominee (Brazil), Prêmio do Salão Arte Pará – 2014 (Brazil), Prêmio Funarte – Mulheres nas Artes Visuais – 2013 (Brazil) and Prêmio Bolsa de pesquisa no Salão de Arte Contemporânea de Pernambuco (Brazil) – 2004.
