Clara Ianni

Brazil 1987. Lives and works in São Paulo.

"The political and social context in which I am involved deeply inform my practice. The contradictions of Latin American’s modernization is a subject that I’ve been very interested in – and specially how it happened in Brazil. To look at the symbiotic existence of very incongruous features – like the simultaneous existence of the most developed with the most archaic, liberalism with patrimonialism, industrialization with slavery – has been something I have been very curious about."
