Joanna Mamede is a Visual Artist and Translator based in London. Most of her work explores language, culture, and the perception of difference. With 10 years of experience in Film and TV, she's worked with international crews around the world for recognised brands and channels. In 2019 she was awarded a distinction for the MRes Art: Moving Image degree at Central Saint Martins (UAL), and a First for her BA degree in Communications from ESPM in São Paulo.
“Translation is not only switching from one language to another, it is also something we do to explain our mind to the world, which is in turn language itself. Most of my work explores language, culture, and the understanding of difference. Using text, forms, images and colours, I like to deconstruct discourses and traditional narratives to find the spaces in between elements, the differences, which might aid or prevent communication. Because it is in fact hard to explain such a simple and personal thing, I like to use art to translate meaning.”
