Andressa Furletti

Multidisciplinary Artist
Bio

Andressa Furletti is a Brazilian multidisciplinary artist based in New York. She is the co-founder and artistic director of Group Dot BR, NY's only Brazilian theater company. She has a diverse background with degrees in Biology, Filmmaking, and acting from the Stella Adler Studio NY. She has also participated in the Watermill Center's summer program coordinated by Robert Wilson on two occasions. Her work includes stage and film acting, performance art, installation, and other artistic expressions. She uses various media to portray subtleties that our eyes cannot always see, such as patterns and the micro and macro universes that surround us. Through her art, she reflects on important issues related to society, politics, and the environment and aims to engage the audience and inspire them to think about these issues in new ways. Her propositional works are designed to be experienced through the senses, inviting the spectator to fully immerse themselves and consider its implications for their consciousness and understanding of the world. Andressa creates unique and thought-provoking works that challenge the viewer to think beyond the boundaries of traditional art.

Andressa received several awards including Best Multimedia Show at the United Solo Festival in New York for her debut solo theater show free•dom - a solo of many people, the Outstanding Community Service Award from the Brazilian Community Heritage Foundation, 5 awards in international film festivals for Separation Sonnet,  nine nominations for her performances and artistic creations and the Best Actress Award (2017) from the Brazilian International Press Awards. Since launching her NFT collections, her workshops have been in over 11 physical and virtual exhibitions. 

 

Andressa's recent works include the play Inside the Wild Heart, an immersive theatrical experience based on the works of Clarice Lispector that premiered in NYC in 2016, had a second run in 2018, and was available for streaming online in 2020/21. She also created the performance Yes, All Women, which explores the alarming number of women who have suffered sexual assault and is now being presented as an NFT. In addition, she performed the piece #TakeASelfieOnMe in 9 different cities, including Paris, Berlin, New York, Amsterdam, and Rio de Janeiro, and at Burning Man. She has also worked on the films That Smell of Roasted Pork by Modesto Lacén and Vislumbres by Regina Miranda, the play Metanóia, which was presented as part of the Downtown Live festival in New York in 2021, and the video art collection Gaia Viva, which is being sold as NFTs and is planned to become an immersive installation. Andressa is also involved in other crypto arts projects.

I use different types of media to express my ideas such as film, theatre, performance art, photography, and visual arts. As an artist, I’m interested in things our eyes can’t see; patterns, feelings, hidden messages, micro and macro universes. I look for a way of making them visible by using symbols and metaphors instead of telling a realistic story.

In Brazil, I started to develop works that are independent of words to convey an idea using body movement as a form of language. The transition to performance art was inevitable after being a two times participant of the Watermill Summer Program coordinated by the multi-artist Robert Wilson.

Because of my strong background in Theatre and Film, my work has a dramatic element to it and often includes multimedia and because of my Biology degree, my creative process usually starts from a biological point of view, from instinct and animal behaviors to molecular biology. I also draw inspiration from Eastern concepts, mythology, and psychology.

My work usually responds to contemporary social issues. I try to go to the core aspects of those issues and present them as a form of discussion. I like to offer the facts so the audience can formulate their questions and think about the answers. I don’t want to fill the gaps, I want the audience to fill them with whatever resonates with them.
