    Dear team at Meanwhile in Kenya,
     
    I hope this finds you well.
     
    My name is Marcela Flórido and I am a Brazilian artist.
    Growing up in Brazil, so many cultural exchanges between Africa and Brazil are present in our daily cuisine, our music, clothing, religion, dance but this exchange is not so present among contemporary artists.
     
    I am writing to you as I am traveling to Kenya where I will be spending the next month and a half at the Tilleards Project Art Residency in Lamu. During the course of the next few weeks, I will be painting and produce my exhibition which will happen at Peponi.
     
    In my practice, I explore femininity, sexuality, and intersections of gender, race, and identity. Seen through color fields or blocked-out by floating hearts, the images in my work depict fabricated memories of my home country Brazil. Through research and experimentation, my paintings question how we inhabit or imagine both identity and place in our constant redefinition of home.
     
    I am writing to you as I am hoping to find a writer who’d be interested in flushing out those ideas, for an interview or another piece of writing that could accompany the residency.
     
    Would love to hear back if this is of any interest to you!
    And I would also be very pleased with your presence during my exhibition
     
    All the best,
    Marcela Florido
