Brasília – DF, 1991
Diana Salu is an artist, designer, writer, and publisher, as well as a “travesti and dyke – nothing very linear”, as she herself puts it.
The focus of her productions is in working the hybridism of mediums and genres with a gaze especially aimed towards poetry, drawing, landscape, memory and self-investigation, discovery and invention.
In her works, Diana Salu uses fragments of her lived experience with transgenderness and with lesbianism in a creative experience about revisiting, retelling, and inventing memory. Her small obsession with ruins and images of destruction are worked in her creations, such as in the series “Carcaças” [“Carcasses”] (2015)
