Fascinated by other living creatures, the work of Cardoso explores the limits between nature and culture. Plants, insects and any real animal related to her own life are the protagonists of her videos.
Cardoso?s dog?s fleas were famous at the New York Museum of Contemporary Art in the video Flea Circus (1995-2000). After five years of research, Maria Fernanda Cardoso presented a video produced by Philadelphia's Fabric Workshop and Museum.
