Anabela Costa

The digital image has been the point of interest for Anabela Costa, an artist with a repertory of solo exhibitions. Visual art conducts her to the research in experimental film, based on two axes: the moving image the aesthetics of representation of movement, and the formalization of thematic and scientific concepts.

Born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal this visual artist studied Fine Arts at Lisbon Fine Arts University and since the 2000 she has been experimenting with film, making animation, combining two research areas: web, time, liquid state, and Landscape, which were programmed and awarded in international festivals devoted to avant-garde cinema, animation and video art.

Living in Paris since 2010, Costa continues her artistic  and technology research by working with experimental software in the generation of images still images or moving image.
