    lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands
    1973: Was born in Angola

    Lives and works in Amsterdam and London) video installations reflect on the crucial role that memory plays in forming notions of cultural identity, belonging, and displacement. Cristóvão uses video, photography, and sound to document the personal and collective memories of often-painful pasts, including the recollections of African-born Europeans about the continent they fled as children during de-colonization. She builds upon, but is not limited to, her links to her birthplace of Luanda, Angola, as a descendent of Portuguese parents. Cristóvão’s work has been featured in exhibitions such as Dak’Art and the São Paolo Biennale as well as at such venues as the Fowler Museum at UCLA (Los Angeles).
