Nadia Granados is a Colombian performance artist who uses her body in combination with multimedia technologies to explore relationships between the representation of state violence in mainstream media, institutionalized machismo, heterosexual pornography and violence against women. Her work is both performative and technological, art and activism, a mix of cabaret, public intervention and video streaming. She was selected for a Franklin Furnace Fund grant for the performance Your Car is Clean, Your Conscience is Dirty. The first version of this show was presented at the Rencontre Internationale d’Art Performance 2012 in Quebec. That evening, seven festival artists were invited to perform about the difficulty of obtaining visas. The performance was executed in collaboration with the Quebec-based Brazilian artist Henri Louis Chalem, who drove the car and improvised the questions in French.
