Minerva de Carvalho
Born 1983, Sintra-Portugal
Lives and works in London, United Kingdom

Hi! I’m a visual artist working with photography, video and sound. My visual work explores the digital versus analogue ( and its indexicality), and proposes different ways of looking at the new ‘technologies of the visible’. My sound work is inspired by noise, experimental and musique concrète artists. Similarly to my photographic work, through sound I explore notions of memory, loss, the subconscious mind, dreamstates, otherness, hauntology...  Currently performing with Cleaver Boi & The Hungry Ghost: https://cleaverboiandthehungryghost.bandcamp.com/
