About the artist:
Iara Freiberg is a Brazilian/Argentinian artist, born in São Paulo (1977), currently based in the same city. Received a degree in Fine Arts from the University of São Paulo.
Since 2002, she has participated in solo and group exhibitions in cities as Brasilia, Buenos Aires, London, Montevideo, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago de Chile, Sao Paulo, Toronto, among others.
Her work mainly focuses on the relationship between the human body and its surrounding space: the spatial perception of urban architecture and its inner containing spaces.
Her main interest is to use the art as medium for investigating the use of spaces and establishing dialogues regarding awareness about places we occupy and pass through. Most ofher research is based on concepts related to private and public spaces closely connected to human perception: circulation spaces, empty places, abandoned sites, labyrinths, and the absence of the body in relation to its perceptions.
Thank you Iara, we hope to work with you in the future.
