Patricia Werneck Ribas was born in Itapetininga (BR), lives and works in Amsterdam.
Working mainly with lens based media, Patricia W. Ribas is interested in how concepts of identity and the human experience can be captured, manipulated and understood through the use of images.
Taking the female condition, race and colonisation as a starting point, she creates portraits, video (installations) or more abstract image constructions with the purpose to investigate how archetypes and individuals can be depicted and interpreted in a broad variety of ways.
P.W. Ribas has a BFA in Audio Visual Arts (VAV) from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and she has participated in several (group) shows and screenings in The Netherlands and abroad.
