At a pivotal moment in the artist’s practice and a time of heightened international interest in her work, Laura Lima is creating a new, site-specific installation for ICA Miami’s Atrium Gallery, marking the Brazilian artist’s first solo American museum exhibition. A conceptual artist who subverts the mediums of performance, sculpture, and painting, Lima subjects the body to juxtapositions with objects and strange rituals that instigate new modes of interaction between work and viewer. The installation for ICA Miami builds on Lima’s previous explorations of the human body and costume to explore perception, social relationships, and everyday human behaviors.
Laura Lima, born in 1979, has had solo exhibitions at the Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid; Migros Museum, Zurich; Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm; Performa 15, New York; Museu do Estado Recife-PE, Brazil; Museu de Arte da Pampulha, Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Her work has been included in major group shows at the Serpentine, London, Beyeler foundation, Basel. 2006 Sao Paulo Biennale, and Frieze, London, UK. Lima is a co-founder and partner of the Galeria A Gentil Carioca in downtown Rio de Janeiro with Marcio Botner and Ernesto Neto. She received her degree in philosophy at the State University of Rio de Janeiro and studied at the Visual Arts School of Parque Lage in Rio de Janeiro. The artist lives and works in Rio de Janeiro.
