Alice Miceli

1980 · Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Alice Miceli’s photos and videos reinvent the landscape, commencing with research and research trips. Her works revolve around social issues and, therefore, her landscapes present cold and traumatic images. As we look at her images, it often seems that someone has already been there. But for some reason their presence was erased. This is how Miceli shows us that absence is a consequence of human intervention, and that erasure is a political situation. Miceli has a B.A. Hons degree from the École Supérieure d'Études Cinématographiques, Paris, and a Master's degree in Art history and Architecture from the Pontifícia Universidade Católica, in Rio de Janeiro.
