Bio

Vitória Cribb (b. 1996) graduated from Superior School of Industrial Design at the State University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The artist uses the digital environment as a way to explain her investigations and reflections related to digital presence; surveillance; digital bodies; self expression and psychological damage on the cyberspace crossed by her subconscious -  while investigating social behavior in face of the development of new visual information technologies, in contemporary society. The transposition of her thinking through the immateriality presented in digital are central points in the works developed by the artist in recent years.

In 2023 the artist participated in the 22nd SESC Videobrasil Biennial and was awarded with a residency at the Wexner Center for the Arts. In 2022 Vitória Cribb was awarded the PIPA PRIZE Award - A relevant Brazilian Contemporary Art Prize and participated with a commissioned digital artwork on Bangkok Art Biennale 2022 - Virtual Venue.

The artist's works are part of the permanent collection of the Denver Art Museum and Brazilian National Museum of Republic. Cribb’s  work has been featured in international exhibitions:
Playing Entity (Esc Medien Kunst Labor, Graz, Austria, 2024); FROM THE UNDERWATER MOUNTAINS FIRE MAKES ISLANDS (Delfina Foundation, London, 2024);  Memory is anEditing Station - 22nd Biennial Videobrasil (São Paulo, 2023); DOS BRASIS (São Paulo, Brasil); CHAOS:CALM and BETWEEN BAB (Bangkok Art Biennale, 2022); Who Tells a Tale Adds a Tail (Denver Art Museum, 2022); Perfect Body (Esc Medien Kunst Labor, Graz, Austria) ; The Silence of Tired Tongues (Framer Framed, Amsterdam, 2022); Hotel Blue (Vellum LA, Los Angeles, 2022); Oh I Love Brazilian Women (Apexart, New York, 2022); Disembodied Behaviors (Bitforms Gallery, New York , 2020); The Brazil that I Want (Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève, online, 2020);
