Sachia Pereira Stolle (Rotterdam, NL) engages with human and animal behaviour in art and public space. The made work mainly comprises a combination of video, performance and interactive installations in which human-like animals play a role, in the form of designed costumes. The relationship between these characters and certain power structures or hierarchies in society is a recurring theme and forms exciting, sometimes confrontational and investigative stories.
By placing these animals in social situations in which contemporary problems shine through, the viewer is challenged to communicate with or about these works in an open and playful manner. The use of costumes creates an absurdistic filter which alleviate these issues in a humoristic way. A tragicomic drama is then created, often executed and directed on location. The documentation of this then manifests itself in a variety of art forms, related to the situation.
