Andrew Amorim

Andrew Amorim works with photography, film, video installations, sound and text to explore themes of identity, memory and decay.

Andrew Amorim (born 1983 in BelĂ©m, Brazil) is a 2016 graduate from the Bergen Academy of Arts and Design, and now lives and works between Bergen and Kampala. His work largely consists of stagings in front of a camera, where choreography and narrative play key roles. Combining found and original material, new narratives are presented through reproduction and editing. Andrew Amorim’s installations are often concentrated around slow and contemplative videos that references cinematic and minimalist traditions.

My works often explores the human condition through observations of some sort of extreme activity or personality which arises out of personal interest and curiosity towards the strange, the outcast, the perverted, the disobedient and the insistent. I try to create poetic renderings of the world we live in through these characters, that I place in front of my camera.
