Carla Rebelo

Carla Rebelo (b. 1994, Sao Tome and Principe) tries to reimagine geopolitical boundaries from an emotional and metaphysical perspective, as a way to reclaim agency in the vital connection between place and self. 

Through photography, video and text, a keen interest in the process of identity construction has always been an underlying driver of her artistic practice. Rebelo describes her projects as by-products of a personal quest for meaning and control over her own narrative. 

Besides experimentation and self-learning, she received photographic training at El Observatorio in Barcelona and through the Catchupa Factory Artistic Residency for new photographers in Mindelo, the latter being her formal contact with the history and practice of photography in the African continent.
