Ícaro Lira

Fortaleza, Brazil, 1986.
Lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil.

PIPA 2015 and 2016 nominee.

Visual artist, editor and researcher, with research developed under the experimental documentary. Lira studied Cinema and Video at Casa Amarela-UFC, Fortaleza, CE, Installation and Sound Editing, at Instituto de Cinema Darcy Ribeiro, Rio de Janeiro, RJ and at Escola de Artes Visuais do Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, participated in the Programs Fundamentação e Aprofundamento.

For the past five years, Lira has been analysing the implications and the development of political and historical acts of Brazilian history through documental works, archivist, archeological and fiction. His exhibitions present similar structures to ‘museums’, reuniting several forgotten fragments, and producing a system of objects which articulates artistic and non-artistic materials and a set of actions, not necessarily confined to an artistic object, but scattered in exhibitions, books, studios, debates, walks etc.
