Artist in residence Carolina Faller Moura is a Brazilian writer and artist living in Berlin. She earned her MFA in Writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she received the 2016 MFAW Writing Fellowship Award. Her work is concerned with questions of belonging and displacement — to/from a place, a language, relationships or nature.
While in Iceland, she has become interested in the role of the North in the process of finding oneself, literally (through navigation) and figuratively (as in the words “nortear” and “desnortear”, from the Portuguese).
She is the founder and editor of homonym, an online publication focused on multi-lingual and translation-minded art & writing.
