Alice Miceli utilizes formal experimentation, investigative travel, and archival research to chart the visual, physical, and cultural manifestations of trauma inflicted on social and natural landscapes. In photographs, videos, and installations, her projects explore not only their depicted subjects, but the history and continued use of the media with which they have been represented. They make use of organizational systems that are at once intuitively conceived and rigorously designed. Recent projects include 88 from 14,000, which makes use of the photo archive from Cambodia’s infamous S21 Prison, and Chernobyl Project, which documents the exclusion zone around the site of Chernobyl’s nuclear disaster using specially developed photographic processes. Miceli was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and studied film at the Ecole Superieure d’Etudes Cinematographiques in Paris. She returned to Brazil to pursue degrees in the History of Art and Architecture at the Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro and in Studio Practice at the Parque Lage Visual Arts School. Her work has been featured in the Sao Paulo Biennial, the Sydney Film Festival, and Documenta 12 in Kassel, Germany. A book of her photographs, Chernobyl Project, is available through Several Pursuits, Berlin.
