Ícaro Lira

Born in Fortaleza, Ceará, Brasil, 1986.
Lives and works in São Paulo-SP.

Visual artist, editor and researcher, with research developed under the experimental documentary. Lira studied Cinema and Video at Casa Amarela-UFC, Fortaleza, CE, Installation and Sound Editing, at Instituto de Cinema Darcy Ribeiro, Rio de Janeiro, RJ and at Escola de Artes Visuais do Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, participated in the Programs Fundamentação e Aprofundamento. Currently participates in the PIMASP – Art Museum Independent Program of São Paulo (SP).

For the past five years, Lira has been analysing the implications and the development of political and historical acts of Brazilian history through documental works, archivist, archeological and fiction. His exhibitions present similar structures to ‘museums’, reuniting several forgotten fragments, and producing a system of objects which articulates artistic and non-artistic materials and a set of actions, not necessarily confined to an artistic object, but scattered in exhibitions, books, studios, debates, walks etc.
