To Ana Mazzei, art, architecture and landscapes construct, in themselves, a fiction that connects them, resulting in installations, settings and objects. Some of the works operate on a smaller scale, such as the series of installations arranged on the floor formed by groups of small shapes made of felt, concrete or wood similar to the architectural models of old cities, amphitheaters or monuments. Beyond the formalist exercises, these floor objects invoke unidentified stories that suggest hidden and impenetrable archetypal structures - they are like pieces and fragments of myths, lives and fictions that are represented in paintings, videos, sculptures and installations.
Her works were recently featured in important institutional exhibitions at Padiglione d'Arte Contemporanea in Milan, Cuenca's International Biennial, São Paulo's International Biennial, House of Egorn in Berlin, Contemporary Art Centre in Lithuania, Instituto Tomie Ohtake in São Paulo, Parque Lage in Rio de Janeiro, among others.
