”Um ciborgue é um organismo cibernético, um híbrido de
máquina e organismo, uma criatura de realidade social e também
uma criatura de ficção. Realidade social significa relações sociais
vividas, significa nossa construção política mais importante,
significa uma ficção capaz de mudar o mundo.”
-Manifesto ciborgue, Donna J. Haraway
Born and raised in Curitiba, the artist Douglas Tartaia (21 years old) fell in love with the universe of art as a child. Starter his career in theatre, where hi could work on his aesthetic and communication with the audience. Expanded himself into the universe of dance, makeup, music, drawing, fashion editorial production, concept creations and urban interventions.
Douglas, non-binary artist with fluid aesthetic vision, works his artistic aspects referencing Greek mythology’s aesthetic, from Aphrodite and Apollo’s son, hymen, who has a beauty that transcends the image of what a masculine figure should look like by the time, many times being seen as a woman. He’s also inspired by Tu are Shen, from Chinese mythology, that, in literal translation means “bunny god”, a Chinese pantheon divinity who manages homoaffectiveness love and sexuality.
As the subject of his work the artist uses post-humanism references.
“A cyborg is a cybernetic organism, a hybrid of machine and organism, a creature of social reality as well as a creature of fiction. Social reality is lived social relations, our most important political construction, a world-changing fiction.”
- Cyborg manifesto, Donna J. Haraway
