conceptual artist // material/ textile design

Elena Renée Pereira, Netherlands / Germany / India, 16.11.1985

From anatomical examinations on a dissecting table to imprints

that are formed into material studies through progression of per formative nature or emanated forms.

Into the intimate nature of the domestic and its daily rituals in behaviors.
Rediscovering indigenous methodologies for making, printing and in this the urge for preserving and capturing the process questioning; the organic and the so-called man made nature in an examination.
