Juliana Manara (b.1983, Brazil/UK) - MiniB

"MiniB was my imagination and now I am being able to make it visible through a playful, humorous photograph work. With fantasy it simulates some observations of human life. Each work brings ideas of feelings, facts or attitudes. It introduces multiple meanings with the universality of landscapes, sometimes surreal environments and always a good relationship between human and other animals or the needy relation between humans and material things. MiniB invites us to dialogue about our existence and also can claim to some absurdities of the human conditions. Sometimes it simulates a lost mind, sometimes the challenges or obligations or a very peaceful moment" Juliana Manara explores human experiences simulating the facts with fantasies. Her experimental photographic work is part of a growing up private and public international collection.

Our understanding is not an illusion: it is ambiguous. This ambiguity is present in all our views of works from other civilizations and even when we contemplate works from our own past. We are not Greeks, Chinese, or Arabs; yet neither can we say we fully comprehend Romanesque or Byzantine sculpture. We are condemned to translate, and each of these translations, whether it be of Gothic or Egyptian art, is a metaphor, a transmutation of the original.

About me

I discovered art in High school. Although I had always enjoyed school, art and the classroom became a refuge at Kettering. My senior year consisted of mostly electives, which I embraced. I dabbled in ceramics, glass, figure drawing, and portfolio, but longed to take photography classes.

After graduation I enrolled at Oakland Community College and was inspired and encouraged by the photo program designed by Nick Valenti and Rob Kangas. After a year and a half, I thought about transfering to an art college in an historic district in St. Paul, MN, but backed out last minute… something just did not feel right. Instead, I decided to finish the Associate program at OCC and move to Phoenix, AZ with my mom and brother. I applied to Arizona State University’s Anthropology program, but transferred to the school of art before registration.

Valenti introduced me to Art History with the required History of Photography course. He compiled a thorough survey and included numerous work by lesser know photographers. One evening, he concluded our session with a slide show of postcards made at lynching sites accompineied by Billie Holiday’s Strange Fruit. There was something about Lady Day’s sad soulful lyrics contrasting the images of thick crowds of people, playfully posing in front of striking scenes of inhumanity… my world has never been the same.

I am interested in criticism, public art, curating, teaching and research. In September I am relocating to New York City to figure out my path. I am not opposed to going to graduate school, I just want to decide what to focus on. I feel excited for the possibilities. 

This blog is intended to showcase some of my writing, so you may learn my interests and observe my abilities. Feel free to ask anything.
