She cultivate her passion for singing through study and work as a soul singer. She is among the founders of the independent band urbanSoul. Silvia started training Capoeira, a brazilian martial art and dance form in 2011, her brazilian name is Onda (wave).
STATEMENT OF ART:
We see what we want to see. We perceive the world around us in our own way and sometimes our perception is far from reality. We have got used to rely on our feelings and emotions when we see or judge something and sometimes this leads to the misinterpretation of the things around us, because feelings and emotions can’t be objective. In my exhibition Another Perspective I want to raise awareness on the issue of North African Immigration to Europe. We see what we see thanks to light (knowledge). While the data I present are available, and easy to access, still sometimes we perceive the world and judge without looking for all the information. Knowledge is to look at the world from a different point of view: changing our perspective can make the things we see change their meaning.
