Camille Kachani Born in Beirut, 1963

Lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil Lebanon

Camille Kachani develops an inventive process of possibilities related to the process of transforming nature. Her works are hybrid objects, which investigate the original and primitive conditions of the natural elements. Her work uses everyday materials and objects, exploring new readings, resizing their scales and original functions.

Main solo shows: FUNARTE (São Paulo, 2008); Anual Projects, Paço das Artes (São Paulo, 2007); TRAJECTÓRIAS, Joaquim Nabuco Foundation, (Recife, 2007); Institute of Contemporary Art (Recife, 2005), Museum of Contemporary Art of Paraná (Curitiba, 2004).

We are living through a decisive and critical moment in the relationship between human beings and nature, especially in Brazil. Far from a well-intentioned activism, my goal through these works is to highlight the basic and conflicting intersections between these two poles. When we talk about humanity/nature, we talk about culture/nature. This relationship is mainly unstable, unpredictable and uncontrollable. The notion of a continuous and unthinkable mutation characterizes both nature and the human being, which although irremediably linked to each other, follow an autonomous logic, an antinomy in which the development and expansion (both of culture and nature) are guided only by an immediate and self-centred drive. I ask if it is still possible to speak of Culture and Nature as two distinct subjects, or if they have already been so contaminated by each other that everything is culture and nature at the same time.
