Maria Fernanda Cardoso

One of the most famous recent flea trainers was Colombian artist Maria Fernanda Cardoso who travelled the globe in the 1990s with her flea circus performance. The Tate purchased her props and circus in 2007 and have it in their archives.

Her performances include:

  • San Francisco Exploratorium 1996
  • Fabric Workshop & Museum, Philadelphia 1996
  • New Museum, New York 1998
  • George Pompidue 1998
  • Sydney Opera House 2000

The website has recently been updated with photos and videos of the flea circus.
