Leite, Nayara

Analogue photography, performance, text, installation, video

Artist statement

-- Åpent atelier lørdag 25. september 2021 --

Nayara Leite (b. 1989) is a Brazilian visual artist based in Bergen, Norway, whose practice navigates between analogue photography, performance, text, installation and video. Living abroad has made Nayara, in some ways, more patriotic. Being far away internalised her desire to be closer to Brazil. Not physically, but spiritually. She then found a way of making herself more present and actively involved with the Brazilian LGBTQ+ issues that are so close to her heart by producing a dark and often unbearable portrayal of the oppressive reality in which this community lives in her home country.
