Sadrie Alves is a Belgian Brazilian artist living in the countryside of Flanders. The core of her artistic practice departs from drawing as a symbolic action and catalyst for tender, collective narratives. She is currently working on collaborative projects that share a focus on undermined visual languages, “unreliable” knowledges, and intersectional theory. Together with artist Hussein Shikha, she is developing Tales of Symbologies (2022–ongoing), a research project informed by the philosophies and semiotics of the carpet. With performer Desiree Cerocien, she is developing the musical performance Prazer, Barbara (2022–ongoing), which inquires about the contemporary associations of barbarity and femininity.
