Her works deal with themes regarding art and religious history, Brazilian history and colonialism, optical illusions, maps, travel, and oceans.  Using mixed media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, installations, and photography, she has produced a broad spectrum of works from the nineties to the present day.

The exhibition will feature over 40 of her most significant pieces from different periods that will be arranged in chronological order and will include the installations presented at the 22nd and 24th Sao Paolo Biennials.
