Deborah Engel | Brazil

Deborah Engel was born in Palo Alto, CA, USA in 1977 and moved to São Paulo, Brazil where she currently lives and works.

Deborah proposes illusionist artworks, taking interesting issues linked to expanded photography, experimentation of the perspective, framing, and kinetics. She explores the transitory nature of space and time and extends the function of the mere photographic register from reality; Engel affirms a new use of photography within contemporary art, in which the spectator is able to be triggered to pose questions to the world through the artwork. The artist deals with photography art, making reliefs, when seen frontwards do seem to be plan, but when activated cause the experience, both poetic and instinctive, of the apprehension of the real, by the vision of photography –which could be a film–; letting oneself be moved by it.
