Ana Carolina Rodrigues (1985, Portugal) is a visual artist based in London. Her abstract sculptures, drawings, videos and installations are informed by scientific, poetic and contemporary philosophy, nearly always referencing loss or absence; aiming towards more non-human-centric and ecological concerns.
She was recently awarded the Arts Grant by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, creating a project addressing important issues of our era such as pollution, deforestation and climate change. Rodrigues was awarded, by ACAVA, the Doremi/Grizedele Arts residency, creating a sound work in a quarry and gave a talk named “Use of the Voice in Natural Environments”. She received her BA in Fine Art Painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts, Lisbon, and an MA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Arts in 2015, receiving the Clifford Chance | UAL sculpture award. She recently exhibited work in Portugal in the show “Ensaio sobre a terra” with an accompanying essay written by the Portuguese philosopher and artist Tomás Maia. Rodrigues was invited by the Fine Art director at Chelsea College of Arts to present her work under the title “Artists ad Community/Community of Artists”. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group shows across the UK, China, and Portugal.
