STATEMENT OF THE ARTIST
Yasmim Flores (São Paulo, Brazil, 1985) is a visual artist, performer and art educator.
She lives and works between Rotterdam, the Netherlands and São Paulo, Brazil.
Yasmim’s research focuses on the integration of different disciplines such as drawing, watercolour painting, dance, music and installations.
Her work is rooted in the practice of drawing as a gesture that involves the entire body in an intuitive process, using improvisation and a connection to the present moment through breathing and specific postures. The resulting work is often as much the trace of an ephemeral process as a profound exploration of corporal and organic forms that reference the female body.
She graduated in Visual Arts at Fundação Armando Álvares Penteado (FAAP, São Paulo, 2008), and also completed a specialization at École Nationale de Beaux-Arts (ENSBA) in Paris in 2009.
As a visual artist and performer, Yasmim participated in a number of collective exhibitions in the Netherlands, France and Brazil.
