About the artist
Master in visual arts at USP, where she graduated in 2000, Débora Bolsoni started her education at the School of Visual Arts at Parque Lage in Rio de Janeiro, and at
St. Martin School of Art in London in the 1990s.
In 2004 she was selected for the residency program at the Center for Cultural Arts Remisen-Brande, Denmark, and in 2005, was a resident fellow of the Art Museum of Pampulha, Belo Horizonte.
The interest of her production is focused on making the familiar strange, taking advantage of what is commonly called “manual tasks.” There is a whole repertoire of material and symbolic culture that lies between the mass, the popular and folk, and which appears in her work with a very particular approach about public and private.
Recently the artist has presented the solo project ‘Street Fair’ (2011) for Zone MACO in Mexico City, curated by Adriano Pedrosa.
Among her recent exhibitions are: “Dublê” – a retrospective show with the last 10 years of her and Alexandre da Cunha’s work at São Paulo Cultural Centre (2011) curated by Jose Augusto Ribeiro; “The Contemplation of the World” – a parallel show to the 29th Bienal de São Paul (2010) curated by Paulo Reis; the individual exhibition “beach reading” at Marilia Razuk art gallery (2010) and the show “Absurd” curated by the artist Laura Lima to 7th Mercosul Biennial (2009).
