Jaime Lauriano lives and works between Porto/Portugal and São Paulo/Brazil. Through video, installation, and text, Lauriano examines the violent relations maintained between institutions of power and state control, such as the police, prisons, embassies, borders, and subjects, focusing on the ways in which these institutions shape the subjective processes of society. His work deconstructs the systems of power contained in the production of history, foregrounding the historical traumas relegated to the past in an effort to revise and rework history.
Co-organized by the Center for Latin American Visual Studies (CLAVIS) and the Visual Arts Center with generous support from Shannon and Mark Hart.
