Sissi Aida Breda (Caxias do Sul/RS, 1989) lives and works in Kaiserslautern, where she works as an artist and teacher.
In her artistic practice, she uses different media exploring issues such as space and nature, science and art, imagination and reality.
Since childhood, she has cultivated a notable affinity for manual practices, and already in her adolescence she begins to become interested in unraveling this “mysterious world” of art, when she spontaneously visits and frequents local artists' ateliers.
Having decided to study arts, she begins her preparations for the drawing test at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS). In 2011 she entered the Degree Course in Visual Arts.
In 2015, she paused the course for a year of international experience in Germany, returning to Brazil in 2016, when she completed the course under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Maria Cristina Biazus.
During graduation, a period of experience and important examples, among the artistic languages, engraving, ceramics, photography and drawing stand out, which has always been a constant in the artist's life.
The research exercise in scientific initiation, which marks three valuable years of graduation, took place in the field of studies involving contemporary digital technologies, art and art teaching. This was an extremely important period in her training as a teacher and in developing her research spirit.
Returning to Germany in 2017 marks a phase of adaptation, of learning and searching, of resignification.
In 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, she began her professional career in Germany with an exhibition of drawings and paintings at VHS in Kaiserslautern, participated in Digital Tag DE, and soon after opened ceramics courses that marked the beginning of her teaching activity.
Since then, she has participated in the online proposal of the Curitiba Biennial in Brazil, the Grenchen Triennial in Switzerland, the exhibition Die Neuen II - Galerie Palais Walderdorff in Trier and several other exhibitions in Trier, which intensified after the artist's association at the Kunstverein Gesellschaft für Bildende Kunst Trier.
His research in visual poetics is crossed by his personal experiences and marked by a constant search in both the technical and conceptual sense.
A rupture, however, was noticed around 2021, when the artist began to gradually abandon the resources of observation and began to create her works from her imagination. This rupture is visible in the series The Lost Kingdom, which begins with the artist's intention to create imaginary beings and spaces.
