Adriana Vignoli works with installations and sculptures made with materials such as soil, concrete, ceramics, glass, metals, plants and digital technology. Her process starts with the construction of geometric objects arranged in space in structures of tension and balance only to be altered by chemical or biological components. Thus interactions as modifications of weight, physical state or volume can be provoked. She proposes sculptures that have a life of their own and change slowly but continuously, transforming themselves into different, unpredictable forms. Vignoli is interested in dissolving the material and symbolic boundaries of things; in prompting the onlooker to experience time as a continuous flow, in which past, present and future cannot be distinguished. As an artist, she wants to get closer to what she calls biosculpture.

In 2020, she was selected for the International Artistic Residency at the Hangar in Lisbon, Portugal, and also awarded the TCU National Exhibition Prize in Brasília.
