b. 1985, São Paulo, Brazil
Flavia Junqueira introduces us to scenes where the real and the fictitious, the physical and the allegorical, the present and the past, the adult and the child, are combined, where History becomes a memory. She creates whimsical and festive imaginary landscapes, where we become immersed in the distant scenery of national culture, feeling the weight of history, listening to the silence of the past. Balloons in her works are the performers taking the stage, whatever the theatre is, be it the street or the sky.
She holds a Ph.D. in Visual Arts from the Institute of Arts of the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP), a Master’s in Visual Poetics from the University of São Paulo (USP), and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado (FAAP). She is currently a member of Atêlie Fidalga under Sandra Cinto and Albano Afonso.
Among some of the projects and exhibitions that she participated in are "Culture and Conflict", IZOLYATSIA in Exile; Palais de Tokyo, The World Bank Art Program; Kaunas Photo festival; Solo exhibition “Tomorrow I will be born again” at Cité Dés Arts; collective “Una Mirada Latino Americana” by the Photo España project; the season of Paço das Artes projects; Energias na Arte award at Instituto Tomie Otahke, Nova Fotografia program at MIS; Itamaraty Contest; RedBull House of Art Residence; Open Studio of Casa Tomada, among others.
