Ivy Monteiro

Ivy is a developer of practices and performative roles in dance, music, and visual Arts. They are a natural shapeshifter, re-imagining and re-conceptualizing femininity, gender, social and race expectations through (dis)identification. Furthermore, ancestrality and spirituality are reshaped and envisioned in queer futuristic pieces featuring the artist as the protagonist most of the time. Ivy also goes by the name Tropikahl Pussy, an alter-gender-bender ego, producing events directed to queer people of color. Their work has been presented in the Museum Of image and Sound of São Paulo, Queer Bienial II in Los Angeles, Les Urbaines in Lausanne, Eco Futures Festival in London and at the opening ceremony for the Swiss Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2019.
