The water element is the main basis of Marcella França artistic research. She explores the physical-chemical aspects of water, such as fluidity, volatility, materiality versus immateriality, and correlate them with philosophical concepts such as impermanence, memory, movement, and life. França expands the conventions of art to create public art, performances, video arts, and immersive installations that investigate the relationship between nature, and contemporary existential questions intertwining with ideas of decolonial issues, ecofeminism, and immigration.
