Jaime Lauriano (São Paulo, 1985) lives and works between Porto and São Paulo. He graduated from the Centro Universitário Belas Artes in São Paulo in 2010.
With works marked by an attempt to achieve a synthesis between the content of his research and formalisation strategies, Jaime Lauriano calls for an examination of power structures associated with the production of History. In his audiovisual works, objects and critical texts, Lauriano shows how the violent relations maintained between the institutions of state power and control — such as the police, prisons, embassies, borders — and private individuals, shape society's subjectification processes. His production seeks to reveal historical traumas which have been relegated to the past and confined archives, in a proposal for collective re-elaboration and revision of History.
His most recent solo exhibitions include: Marcas, in the Joaquim Nabuco Foundation (Recife, Brazil); Ao Norte do Rio, Sesc Santana (São Paulo, Brazil); Brinquedo de furar moletom, MAC Niterói (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil); Assentamento, Galeria Leme (São Paulo, Brazil). He has also participated in various group exhibitions, in particular in Brazil, in spaces such as the Bank of Brazil Cultural Centre (São Paulo), CAIXA Cultural Brasília (Brasília), Rio Art Museum (Rio de Janeiro), Tomie Ohtake Institute (São Paulo) and the Mercosul Visual Arts Biennial (Porto Alegre) and also at the Pérez Art Museum Miami (Miami, USA).
