Iara Guedes is a multidisciplinary artist born in São Paulo / Brazil, 1976.
She studied dance and performance at the University of Communication and Arts of the Body (PUCSP) from 1999 to 2002. Her interest in animation and its possibilities related to performance began in 2004. She dedicated to apprehending the practice of computer graphics and related technologies to create an environment where live performance could be incorporated. Additionally she studied Digital Cinema at the International Academy of Cinema and Animation of Characters at the Melies School from 2008 to 2010.
In 2014 she moved to Berlin where she strengthened the development of a constant work in progress of performances inspired by Japanese Butoh and German expressionism exploring its unfoldings and intersections in video, photography, installations and animation, including collaborating with other artists. Her interest in the dissection of performance possibilities is currently in performance-installation-interactive where the artist is a kind of living sculpture, somewhat reminiscent of freak shows where animals or people with mutations are exposed as aberrations. Her work is open to possibilities and reflects on evolutionary processes, dualities, cycles, repetitions, transformations and the inversion between subject and object through improvisation and the invitation to non-passivity of the audience.
