Fabiana de Barros

Fabiana de Barros is a Swiss-Brazilian artist, who works and lives in Geneva (CH) and Sao Paulo (BR). Her work focuses mainly on travel, urbanism, interrelations and interactivity. She likes to create contexts or social sculptures in which people meet and participate, like Aller-Re/Tour, a travel agency, and AUTO PSi, a taxi ride, where she accompanies her public into an artistic experiment. The Fiteiro Cultural, one of her masterpieces, reflects her wish to create a contextual art. The artist is also active as Millagrosa Vella on Second Life, where she rents some land and invites other artists to produce artworks and as FABMIC for her production with Michel Favre.
