The practice of Lenora de Barros encompasses a deep investigation of language in its many different forms – linguistic, visual, sonic, spatial – and explores the different meanings generated by confrontations between these differing languages. Throughout her oeuvre, the body is a constant feature. De Barros entangles the body, the self, in both material and conceptual consideration, to reflect how they can be traced and defined by language. How language, the body, and the self are each imbricated in the fertilization and reproduction of the other. Indeed, this endeavor is reflected in the poetic genesis of works between different media – a text becomes a photo series, becomes a video, becomes a performance, becomes a sound installation. Each work echoes the other and speaks of a constant state of becoming, an interplay between mediums and forms, a body and a self in flux.
