Common Dreams: Climate Grief
Maria Lucia Cruz Correia’s artistic work speaks of her deep engagement with environmental issues. She reacts to the ecological crimes of our times by bringing audiences into a participatory environment that connects the artistic to the voices of scientists, activists and lawyers. Her actions tackle utopian healing by proposing clinical aesthetics that unveil human and non-human interconnectivity. Correia’s work is informed by contemporary discourses on the Anthropocene, colonialism of nature, climate change and pollution. Correia proposes participatory articulations by creating temporary autonomous platforms which create moments of disruption and harmony between seemingly disparate bodies of knowledge, cultural traditions, resilience, value systems and social transformation.
