Paula Nishijima is a visual artist and researcher from São Paulo/Brazil. Her research-led practice often unfolds through long periods of time and on the crossroads of academia, institutional critic and a participatory social practice. She studies the duality between producer and consumer and its ramifications in nature and health. Her narratives question personal and collective motivations with a psychoanalytic tone through happenings, video and photography.
Paula combines her artistic practice with her editorial work through independent editorial projects. She is part of the translocalia.com —a network of artists, designers, curators, audiences and professionals from different domains to discuss, share and plan for the future through art. She holds an MA in Arts and culture from the Leiden University, Netherlands and a BA in Visual Arts from the Universidade Estadual Paulista Júlio de Mesquita Filho, São Paulo,
