Yara Pina is visual artist and librarian. She has a degree in Library Science and Visual Arts at the Universidade Federal de Goiás. She is interested in investigating different social and historical contexts, exploring the traces of the memory of violence and its inscriptions on violated and absent bodies. In her actions, she moves between presence and absence leaving in physical space only traces of the passage of her body in confrontation with other "bodies". She currently lives and works in Goiânia.
