SONIA TÁVORA (1952) was born in Rio de Janeiro. The artist lives and works between Brazil and Portugal. In 1976, she graduated in Architecture and Urbanism by the Integrated Faculties Bennett, and from 2004 on she is dedicated to visual arts in its multiple languages. Image and spatial occupation appear as concepts for the elaboration of her works. In 2008 she integrated the Printed Project, thus constituted by a group of artists that investigate the plastic possibilities and aesthetics of the engraving. Sonia participated of the research and analysis group on the production of the contemporary art with Felipe Scovino (2011), Daniela Labra (2012), as well as on the deepening/widening of the creative processes, with Ivair Reinaldim (2013/2015).
