Laura Lima

° 1971

Lives in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), born in Minas Gerais (Brazil).

The early work of Laura Lima, a co-founder of A Gentil Carioca, is rooted in an artistic tradition of performance and “body” art that reaches back to the experiments initiated by Lygia Clark and Hélio Oiticica in the late sixties and early seventies.

In her more recent work, Lima turned to a type of installation art that shows her interest in the static, two-dimensional nature of painting to an ongoing involvement with the dynamic, three-dimensional reality of both sculpture and performance.
