Caterina Silva works across painting, performance and video. She explores the links between power and language from silent or pre-linguistic places, in order to elude canonical structures of the production of meaning. She uses painting to probe at the obscure spaces of the mind, those which are impossible to explain in words, but which exist and materialise into matter and then object. The artist creates open images available to the interpretation of the observer, a consequence of a process of deconstruction of her own internal superstructure carried out through the matter of painting itself and its translation into choreographic experiments and performances. The artist combines this with her interest in non-power, which she describes as trying to master randomness and to exercise the least power on the image that wants to emerge. She explores this feeling of powerlessness and discomfort, because it creates an openness towards her surroundings and shifts the artist’s attention from herself to a non-self.
