Laura Lima: «Bar Restaurant»


23. November 2013  –  2. February 2014

Featuring artworks by:
Laura Lima

The artistic practice of Laura Lima (b. Governador Valadares, Brazil, 1971; lives and works in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) is defined by her fascination with the complexity of social relations and forms of human behavior. Her scenarios, in which the human body is often the central medium and driving force, combine performative components with a wide range of media of artistic expression such as drawings, sculptures, and installations. Lima herself never acts in her pieces, instead instructing selected protagonists to enact her dramaturgic designs. The Brazilian artist’s first solo exhibition in Switzerland features "The Naked Magician" (2008/10/13) and "Bar Restaurant" (2010/13), a selection of performative installations that focuses on the question of magic.
