Visual artist and art educator, Moisés Patrício was born in 1984 in São Paulo, where he lives and works. With a degree from the School of Communications and Arts of the University of São Paulo (ECA–USP), he uses photography, video, performance and installations in works that deal with the sacred elements of Amerindian and Afro-Brazilian culture. A significant feature of his work is his allusion to Candomblé, for whom the sacred passes through the body and its manual possibilities. Exhibitions he has particpated in include: Dakar Biennial at the Museum of African Arts (Senegal, 2016), “A Nova Mão Afro Brasileira” Museu Afro Brasil (São Paulo, 2014) and “Papel de Seda” at the Pretos Novos Institute for Research and Memory – IPN Memorial Museum (Rio de Janeiro, 2014). In the exhibition “Negros Indícios” (São Paulo, 2017), Patrício presented his performance Padê de Exu libertador (2017) from the poem of the same name by Abdias Nascimento (1914-2011).
