Jaime Lauriano

Dowload CV

São Paulo, Brazil, 1985. Lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil.

In his works, Jaime Lauriano discusses the structures involved in the formation of public space and the historical process of the development of the Brazilian state. He uses strategies in contemporary audiovisual productions – such as advertising – from archival materials and field research, to leverage his discussions. Jaime’s production is marked by a synthesis between the content of the research and the strategies of formalization, it is articulated in audiovisual works, objects and critical texts.
In his most recent series of works, the artist explores how historical traumas were elaborated by referring to the different forms of domination that derive from the colonialism in Brazil and that still persist today but are practiced by other agents. Lauriano has also focused on the role of language in the process of colonization, investigating how colonialism goes beyond the material and physical subordination of the subject, and is also embedded in the epistemological system, from colloquial language to cartographic representations.
Jaime Lauriano was one of the winners of the CNI SESI SANTI Marcantonio Vilaça Award and the O.F.F. Prize, 20th Contemporary Art Festival Sesc_Videobrasil, Ostrovsky Family Fund (USA, Israel, Brazil), Brazil, both in 2017.
