Working with installation, photography, sculpture, video, books.

Myriam Santos builds her work through surveys, according to specific contexts and situations related to encounters, travels, or to places discovered during preliminary research.
Her installations are presented as narrative devices that resonate with subjects questioning the place of man in his natural and social environment, at a time when these themes always call for more responses.
Her research involves anthropology, psychology, archeology, language. Explicit and implicit references to artists and literary, cinematographic or musical creations are among her raw materials. Her experience as a set designer for the cinema as well as in the creation of monumental sets extends into the questioning of the relationship to space and it’s perception: she plays with scales, the relationships between reality and fiction.
Her research is currently focused on the ability of humans to develop adaptation strategies that allow them to overcome physical or psychological limits imposed by an environment or a history.
