São Paulo, Brazil
Brazilian visual artist, performer and art educator. Lives and works between Rotterdam – Netherlans and São Paulo – Brasil.
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, painting, dance, music and installations.
Because she grew up in the backstage area of theatres, surrounded by musicians, Yasmim was exposed to the rituals of performance from an early age.] 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.
Yasmim’s work is strongly influenced by Japanese dance and ink drawing traditions, as well as by the Brazilian modernist legacy of thinking and experiencing spaces sensorially. In her workshops for children she encourages others to be similarly receptive to their surroundings, using paint, coloured fabrics and storytelling techniques to collectively explore the body in relation to outdoor spaces.
Yasmim regularly collaborates with other artists and is part of the performance duo YaGe with musician Angelo Ursini.
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.
Her educational workshops for children have been presented at cultural centres and museums in São Paulo such as MAM Museum of Modern Art-SP, Itaú Cultural and SESCs; and in Rio de Janeiro at the visual arts school Parque Lage.
