Marie Carangi, 1989, born in Recife-PE where she lives and works. Graduated in Architecture and Urbanism at Federal University of Pernambuco 2013, she works with performance, video and installation. At 2012 she starts to developing the service-performance called Peluqueria Carangi, at the same time that she frees her own curly hair from straighten. Peluqueria Carangi works with relations between body, space, structures and self-image that cross the hair cut. This work works kind of a laboratory that unfolds in other gestures: like the performances Cut on guillotine style and GRITOFONIA. In most recent researches, another layers of texture are affected through movement, gaining body and sound.

For my residency of Q21 I would like to develop the practices that I have experienced in Brazil of my two works named "Teta Lirica" and "Peluqueria Carangi" in a European context - these works deals with public spaces, performance, freedom of the female body and hair cut. Also for this month in Vienna I would like to develop a new work that has the features of my ongoing  research that has in its interest the subjects of women, tits(Teta), apparel, sound art and experiences with groups of people.
