Fernanda Trevellin (b. 1980, São Paulo, Brasil) is an artist working on a symbolic and also perceptual level through a collection of not only images, but also of materials: earth, minerals, water, and synthetic resources. All of these components function as a secular iconography, aiming to lead one’s relationship to these cultural and/or natural elements to gain a solemn and primordial meaning. Her objects, photographs, installations, and even her studio itself often refer to ancient curious cabinets - as if trying to perceive the world by recovering it from the beginning of its operation in the modern era, yet still seeking new directions. She plays with the notion of feeling her studio to be a laboratory, and an uncertainty of whether she is an artist or a scientist. Her work, correspondingly, well endorses the interchange between these fields of knowledge.
Trevellin first studied art at the University of Fine Arts Tourcoing in France, and later earned a Meisterschülerin title from the University of Arts Berlin, in the class of Olafur Eliasson. She was nominated for the UdK Berlin 2011 Meisterschülerpreise, and continues to work with Eliasson’s UdK-affiliated interdisciplinary project “Institut für Raumexperimente”. Before moving to Europe to pursue her art education, Trevellin graduated in Business Administration from the School Fundação Getúlio Vargas, FGV (2004), and pursued simultaneous Communication and Art Studies at the Escola de Comunicação e Artes at the University of São Paulo, ECA-USP. Her work has been exhibited at the Martin-Gropius-Bau Berlin (2018), Hamburger Bahnhof Museum of Contemporary Art (2017), the Neue National Galerie of Berlin (2014) and the Central Gallery of São Paulo (2013). Trevellin lives and works in Berlin.
