Lives and works in New York. Paula Garcia is a visual artist who holds a masters in Visual Arts FASM-Brazil and Bachelor of Arts FAAP-Brazil. She has been a Marina Abramovic collaborator since 2011.

This practice operates with the capacity of those devices of the senses that can generate a destabilization of the idea of a body that experience. I chose to operate on the aforementioned devices, because the latter are capable of producing distortions that can affect the usual understanding of an experience, by bringing about an alternative perceptive experience of an environment. In my practice I have created a series of performances in which I cover all my body with very strong magnets, while I have others performers cover these magnets with industrial iron scraps all the way until my body disappears under this trash. The concept of "Noise Body" represents a body that is defined by a sum of three factors: precariousness, uncertainty and risk. The magnets are elements of my work that serve to discuss the concept of forces. Not only of the invisible subjective kind, but also of the more evident, social type of forces that work to consolidate a system of power that ends up shaping things like bodies, feelings, subjectivities and truths. In these performances I try to showcase bodies in disassembly, crumbling. Ultimately, what I propose in my actions is a performative use of my body as "material support in which the forms of conflict are inscribed".
