Visually attractive and critical work
Jonathas de Andrade combines fact and fiction in his body of work. He uses staged scenarios, which are created in collaboration, to tell layered stories. These stories are rooted in the territory and history of Brazil, particularly in the Nordeste (northeast region). The stories echo the voices of those less heard and are told through photography, video and installation. The underlying themes are often power relations, class and race.
Since 2015, Foam presents the exhibition series Next Level, with the support of Ammodo. The series is aimed at introducing a wider public to innovative art by relatively young image-makers who are making radical new use of the medium of photography.
