My collage work encloses human bodies, mainly, female figures. It’s more of a process in which the figures find me, choose me. I understand collage as a way to tell things I feel and in this perspective they work as words or stories. Or metaphors. Collage is like poetry for me, and in this sense I agree with the surrealists’ understanding of collage.
Ana Persona is a Brazilian poet and collagist. Her practice ranges from creating minimal poems, some of them typewritten to analogue collage. She also runs workshops at galleries and schools and collaborates with media vehicles as an illustrator. In her blog, A. Persona exercises her writing going from activism to literature, from photography to illustration. And her creation with scissors, glue and bits of dreams.
