Liana Nigri is a visual artist deeply interested in Bio Art and has a master's degree in Textile Futures at Central Saint Martins, London, UK. After living in New York for four years, in 2016 she decided to return to her hometown, Rio de Janeiro, to deepen her research through the art residency Despina. In the following year she was invited to go to the mountains of Romania to be part of another artist immersion promoted by In Context - Slanic Moldova. Yet, it was during her first art residency at SVA, BioArt From the Laboratory to the Studio in 2015, that she begun working on the AfterLife concept. Either through living materials, sculpture, photography, drawing or installation, her work is mostly inspired by elements of nature versus the idea of time passage – and therefore, the notion of impermanence. In that sense, her research consists in observing the changes on the surface of plants or/and human skin in the course of their life cycle. Through this process she invites the audience to take a closer look at life in the perspective of decay that reveals beauty where never imagined before.
