Patricia Orem was born in Vitoria, Brazil (1986). She graduated in Architecture in São Paulo, Brazil, 2010 and studied Fine Arts, at the Chelsea College of Arts, in London, United Kingdom from 2014 to 2016.
Through a wide variety of media such as tapestries, illustrations, moving images, installations and objects in clay, her work explores the poetics of space and place, of displacement and belonging. With a substantial tendency to work on the specificity of a site or group of people, she uses materials widely available on site and creates extemporaneous situations of collaboration and creative participation. Her works have been presented in exhibitions in Sao Paulo and London.
"I like the idea of erasing the line between the artwork and the public, often proposing participatory situations and exchange of roles."
From 2017 she lives at the lake of Mergozzo, where she carries on with her artistic practice and develops the program of art workshops at Casa Della Capra, a space that promotes Art, Cycling and Cooking as a way to explore the territory.
