Como Dancar Funk


Ilana Paterman Brasil


“How to dance funk”, a sentence chosen to search homemade videos on Youtube, is an artistic work in watercolor animation of feminine dance moves of funk from Rio de Janeiro. When searching for this term, the artist discovered a universe of different bodies and social contexts that, in common, had the characteristic of being from women to women, removing the objectified character of the female body that this rhythm is often associated with. By sharing homemade tutorials, drawn women connect with each other through the ancestral funk drum and hip movements. Work composed of 150 watercolors on A4 Canson c’a Grain 180g paper, and soundtrack kindly provided by Mc Serginho.
