Ana Catarina Pinho is a visual artist working across photography, moving image and installation. Her work combines documentary and fictional strategies, often examining the way reality is perceived in regard to its representation and meaning construction.
In addition to her visual work, Pinho is the founder and creative director of Archivo, an independent research platform focused on photography, at the intersection of theory, criticism and creative practice. She is also a research fellow for the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology, developing a PhD at the University of South Wales, in the United Kingdom. In the context of her research, Pinho has recently edited the book “Reframing the Archive” and curated the exhibition “The Empire of Fiction”, both focusing on the artistic appropriation of visual archives from the Portuguese dictatorship in contemporary art.
