Pedro Neves Marques examines clashes among competing anthropologies, politics of nature, technology, and gender. He employs science fiction and speculative storytelling as key tools to produce works that range from fictional dramas to theoretical films and writings.

A Mordida (The Bite)—Neves Marques’s first solo museum presentation in the United States—encompasses an audio-visual installation featuring a set of new films commissioned by PAMM, digital animations, and an ambient sound piece produced by London-based musician Fraencis. Based on research done at a laboratory for genetically modified mosquitos in São Paulo, Neves Marques creates fictional and abstract narratives that question the role of gender in the history of science. The installation evokes an eerie feeling of collapse between biological epidemics and political crisis, specifically seeking to reflect the current alarming spread of intolerant conservative politics in Brazil.
