Araiké Da Silva
The work I do is about strangers, commuters, unknown people which I cross the path with. The identity, the perception of death and the role of the individual in the society are the main themes that concerns my research.
The (In)visible inspires me, what we usually see every day but often do not pay attention to: The misery of homeless, the worker in the Subway, the passing crowd of a demonstration, the anonymous faces and the sparkling eyes breathing under a mask. My pursuit is to show people themselves but from the outside.
I would like them to reflect about the contemporary changing
perception of death and our existence in relationship to the society in which we are living.
