Liene Bosquê’s working process includes mold making, imprint and appropriation, through which she investigates the sensorial experience existing in architectural, urban and personal spaces. Using materials such as latex, clay, plaster, fibers, Bosquê creates installations, sculptures, site-specific projects, as well as performance art, eliciting notions of temporality, fragility, memory and history – common themes in her practice. Bosquê holds an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She received her BFA from the Sao Paulo State University, and a BA in Architecture and Urbanism from the Mackenzie University, both in Brazil. Her work has been included in museum and gallery shows in Brazil, Portugal and Turkey, such as in Carpe Diem in Lisbon and Museu de Arte de Ribeirão Preto in Sao Paulo State, and has also been exhibited in United States in MoMA Ps1, Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, Elmhurst Art Museum in Illinois, Cuchifritos Gallery in New York, among others. Recently, she received the Emerging Artist Fellowship from the Socrates Sculpture Park, where she presents her first public sculpture in the United States. Additionally, her work has been featured in a variety of publications, including Hyperallergic, New York Times, Art Fuse, and Art F City. In addition to serving as a mentor for the New York Foundation for the Arts’ Mentoring Program for Immigrant Artists, Bosquê’s experience includes teaching at Queens Museum and Tyler School of Art, at Temple University.
