Campo Grande, Brazil, 1994.
Lives and works in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

PIPA 2017 nominee.

Manicure and whore-porn-terrorist. She began her studies at the Parque Lage Visual Arts School and began to invade art galleries as aesthetic-political interventions. Like a virus, she has subverted the power protocols of institutional spaces, blurring the boundaries of what is considered official. She has the body as the main research. Her plastic bombs destabilize heteronormative and colonial technologies, they are anabolic projections of her existence. She has been developing video installations with post-pornographic content, warlike jewels and is currently researching gender and classperformance based on color in her “Parayzo Beauty Salon”, a traveling device where she acts as a manicure. Among her main exhibitions,: 2nd Gran Bienal Tropical of Puerto Rico, “Imersões”, Casa França-Brasil, “Encruzilhada” Parque Lage Visual Arts School, “Abre Alas 13”, A Gentil Carioca Gallery, “A Urgência de Cada Um”, Despina/Largo das Artes and “Descamada”, Antiga Fábrica da Behring.
