1991 São Paulo, Brazil.
Works and lives in Berlin, Germany.
Laura Carvalho in her search for different ways of living/being had worked with people who suffer from mental illness and people facing drug abuse in the context of vulnerability. Was inside these apparently hostile environments, where Carvalho found a fruitful place for the development of her visual production. The dynamic ordinations, precarious and provisional, intrinsic in these environments are the substantial matter of her artwork.
Just like the precision of the needle, her main instrument of work, which sews and redefines objects and fabrics, the artist aims the union of different areas of knowledge, techniques and methods, creating a symbolic weaving of new lines of thoughts.
