Lives and works Melbourne, Australia

Cecilia Sordi Campos is a Brazilian-born, Australian-based photographic artist, writer and researcher. Her practice is positioned in the field of socially engaged art, autofiction and expanded documentary. Campos’ work draws on her experience as a Brazilian migrant from both European and Afro-Brazilian ancestry, as well as her experiences as an infertile woman of colour. She makes work through critical engagement alongside an openness to alternative world views and underrepresented perspectives. The works exhibited are drawn from across three bodies of work: Tem Bigato Nessa Goiaba (2019), das palavras a pele (2020-ongoing), Augúrio and the smells that were not there (2021-ongoing) which explore notions of cultural identity and the self, as well as sensual knowledge and the female body through sensations of touch, scent and vision. Her practice seeks to uncover visual strategies for communicating complex experiences within a public discourse.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
