Camila Sposati was born in Sao Paulo and has been living and working between Brazil and Europe for many years. Her works investigate transformation and energy processes, using methods that often approach scientific research methodologies. She has examined processes on microscopic and global scale, such as the growth of crystals in laboratories and the geological effects on the Earth’s crust on different sites. In her work, Sposati juxtaposes material and historical processes in order to challenge official time and its significations.
 
Sposati’s research has taken her to the Amazon, the dry backlands of Northeast Brazil, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, the United Kingdom, France, Holland and Japan. She exhibited at BAK - basis voor actuele kunst, Utrecht (2017), InstitutoTomie Ohtake, São Paulo (2013, 2017), 10th Mercosul Biennale, Porto Alegre (2015), CCBB Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil, Rio de Janeiro (2015), 3rd Bahia Biennale, Salvador (2014), Eleven Rivington Gallery, New York (2013), HICA Highland Institute of Contemporary Art, Inverness-shire (2012), Centro Cultural Montehermoso, Vitoria-Gasteiz (2012), Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature, Paris (2012).
