ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Lilian Colosso (b. 1988) based in Los Angeles and São Paulo, graduated in 2011 at the Centro Universitário Belas Artes de São Paulo with a Bachelor Degree in Visual Arts. Exploring the boundaries between the body and nature, specifically using the body as a material element, has been the focus of her research through performance and video. Recent exhibitions include: Performance festival MOVIMENTA#1, Mezanino Gallery, São Paulo, Brazil, 2015; First collective show at Condomínio Cultural, São Paulo, Brazil, 2014; Laço no Paço, Subsolo do Paço das Artes, São Paulo, Brazil, 2013; Con Pasión: Art and Passion / Brazil and Argentina, Marta Traba Gallery – Fundação Memorial da América Latina, São Paulo, Brazil, 2012; First Collective, Oficina Cultural Oswald de Andrade, São Paulo, Brazil, 2012; FASE3 Art and Technology Meeting, Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2011; Facilitator of the Abramovic Method during the exhibition Terra Comunal, Marina Abramovic + MAI, São Paulo, Brazil, 2015.
Mexican artist Lua Rivera (b. 1989) “experiments to know and produces to survive”. For her, art can erase the boundaries between disciplines, promoting a free interaction between them and allowing the exhibition to transcend the walls of the gallery. As a visual artist she is distinguished by her continuous search and use of multidisciplinary resources such as intervention, collage, photography and textiles.
