FEEL IT TILL YOU MAKE IT
Ana Cunha
Exhibition
2 a 15 Dec. 2pm to 8pm (monday to friday) > Espaço Cultural das Mercês

FEEL IT ‘TILL YOU MAKE IT 
This is a performance created/interpreted by me and self-portrayed that consists in the exteriorization of feelings related to the frustration of carrying a life that is not truthful to who I am. I intend to transmit the discomfort of this introspection and the struggle against what society and its standards say we should be. I want that the observer feels the discomfort and reflects upon the potential meaning of the performance, and not to be limited to the images themselves. My performance was simplified and is based on the belief that performer use their real feelings, through channelling them to a true experience, without faking.

Originally from Sesimbra, in Lisbon since 7 years ago. I grew up in a small town where art is not a way to live, but something to do in the weekends. Ended up studying nursing and becoming a nurse, area that I quickly realized that it was not what I thought. The dehumanization associated with current healthcare systems lead me to pursue a way out, and thus I found photography. I bought my first camera on sale, combining my first two pay checks. 

For economic reasons I am still stuck as a healthcare worker, while I intend to free myself from the diminishing labels that (both at home and in my workplaces) are imposed by people who don’t understand what is to be different. I now study photography at ETIC in the mornings, and work as a nurse in the nights and afternoons.
