Maria Lucia Cruz Correia

Correia's artistic work speaks to her deep engagement with the ecological crises and climate emergency. She reacts to the environmental conflicts of our times by bringing audiences and communities into participatory laboratories that connect the artistic with the voices of scientists, activists and lawyers in long term investigation processes. Correia’s visual installations, performances and participatory laboratories express a sense of cosmopolitics, advocacy and kinship between humans and the more-than-human-world. 

As a designer, Correia proposes temporary utopian services as restoring labs to counteract the impact of the anthropocene, extractivism, and climate emergency. As tools and methodologies her work is informed by practices of systemic constellation, conscious agreement, restorative justice, activism and scientific research.

From 2013 till 2019, Correia’s work was supported as a trajectory at Arts Centre Vooruit, where she developed ‘1 Place and 11400 Seconds’, ‘Urban Action Clinic’, ‘Common Dreams: Flotation School’ and ‘Voice of nature: the trial’. In 2017 she received the Roel Verniers Prijs at the Theaterfestival with her first theater piece ‘Voice of nature: the trial’. In 2019, her new project ‘KINSTITUTE’ was shortlisted for the COAL prize. 

Her work has been supported by Imagine 2020 network till 2020. In 2020 she started a trajectory as an artist with Wpzimmer(BE). Currently her work is supported by networks like Green Art Global Alliance (EU), Displacementjourneys (SW), BEPART (EU) and TerraBatida (PT).
