“A multifaceted artist whose oeuvre includes installations, sculptures, videos, and performance pieces, Maria Fernanda Cardoso creates artworks that investigate nature, culture, and science by using unexpected materials such as plants, shells, and animals.

Cardoso is most known for The Cardoso Flea Circus (1994–2000), an astonishing piece with real, live fleas she trained to perform tricks such as pulling chariots, jumping through hoops, walking on tightropes, and dancing tango.
