Candice Japiassu, Brazilian visual artist based in São Paulo. Photography is her main tool, where she encounters her possible, in some sort of performance before existence - her main subject. Photography became an existential practice in her everyday life, compelling her to deal with things and appreciate even further her condition as a finite being. Most of her research is based on the fusion between the mundane and the extraordinary. She considers the image as means to accept an insufficiency, even if it works by providing her with temporary and illusionary foundations.
She holds a Post Graduation in Photography by FAAP University, São Paulo - Brazil and a Master of Contemporary Photography; Practices and Philosophies by Central Saint Martins, London - UK.
