Beatriz Chachamovits works with drawings and sculptures, investigating the marine ecosystems, its forms and beings; highlighting the declining state that coral reefs environments are facing today. She invites the public to discover a complex biological network, where the idea of systems is materialized through organization, symmetry and repetition. In her latest installations, the phenomenon known as coral bleaching and ocean acidification is the main start point to discuss the human effects on ocean conservancy. She is one of the founders of the Iscream project and is an active participant of Blasfêmeas collective, which builds a network for dialogue among women that work and act in the Visual Arts field in São Paulo.
