Maria Fernanda Cardoso is a Columbian-Australian artist with a deep interest in the crossover of art and science. In 2003 she had a major solo show “Zoomorphia” at Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art, and a mid-career survey at BLLA, the leading contemporary art museum in Bogota, Colombia. In 2000, New York’s MoMA commissioned a major installation for their millennium show, ‘Modern Starts’, which subsequently toured the country. In 2003 she represented Colombia at the Venice Biennale.  Her piece Cardoso Flea Circus (1997) recreated the actual 19th century curiosity and is now part of the permanent collection of the Tate Modern, London. While researching fleas Cardoso uncovered a quote about flea penises that led her to investigate a broad range of animal and insect genitalia. This specific quote was the catalyst for her PhD research project “The Museum of Copulatory Organs” at Sydney College of The Arts and culminated in her 2011 solo exhibition at Melbourne's Arc One gallery “It’s not size that matters, it is shape”.

Her work is also held in the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, the National Gallery of Art, Canberra and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. In her 27 year career, she participated in 40 solo exhibitions and 130 group exhibitions in over 26 countries.
