Laura Lima experiments and blurs the boundaries between the quotidian and the absurd, imaginary and real, performance and sculpture. Her principal subject and matter is the human body.
She graduated in Philosophy at the State University of Rio de Janeiro and studied at the Visual Arts School of Parque Lage in Rio de Janeiro. Lima has had solo exhibitions at the Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid, Spain; Museu do Estado. Recife-PE. Brazil; Museu de Arte da Pampulha, Belo Horizonte, Brazil; Galeria Luisa Strina, São Paulo, Brazil; Hardcore Art Contemporary Space, Miami; and Chapter Art Center, Cardiff, Wales.
