    Bruna Valença

Cloud Headed Is an artistic persona created at the beginning of Quarantine. Cold hands. Jaw locked. I couldn't eat. Lost weight, I couldn't sleep. And that roller coaster feeling that COVID brought into my life resulted in post-traumatic stress syndrome. I was diagnosed just after the Quarantine exploded in Brazil, more than a year ago. I intend to use my body as my own tool to manifest states on my mental health throughout pandemic times. Self Portrait, Emulsion Lifts and manipulations on Polaroids.

Bruna Valença is a 30-year-old Brazilian visual artist. Born in Recife, Pernambuco. A fan of analogue photography and the study of the subconscious, the main feature of her work today in the field of Self Portrait and PhotoPerformance studying under the female body as a personal self-knowledge tool.
