Isabel Cordovil (1994) was born in Lisbon and raised between nuns, priests and the wonders of pre-surveilled internet. The main focus of her practice has been an on-going exploration of the written word, objecthood and autobiographical mapping through creating or morphing of independent matter. Assuming that life itself is performative, this body of work can be perceived as documentation that long running performance piece.
Since she got her MFA at HEAD Genève and set her studio in Lisbon, her work has been focused on project by project challenges that with time reveal what is solid and coherent between them all: a genuine passion for the poetic metamorphosis of the banal. As an original member of Rabbit Hole queer collective (regularly present at Galeria Zé dos Bois) the interest on gatherings and performative gestures led her into searching still matte and volumes on space, sometimes called sculpture, other times called companions.
