Jonathas de Andrade works with installation, photography, and video to explore constructs of love and the process of urbanization, with particular emphasis on Brazil’s vibrant but often overlooked northeast region.

He builds his remarkable work through research and investigation.

He took part in the 7th Mercosul Biennial, in Porto Alegre, in 2009; the 29th São Paulo Biennale, in 2010; the 12th Istanbul Biennial, in 2011; the second New Museum Triennial, titled The Ungovernables, in New York, in 2012; and, more recently, the exhibition of the twenty artists selected, from some 4,000 candidates, for the Future Generation Art Prize 2012 established by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation.
