Gabriel hyra, is a young visual artist and Brazilian jeweler, “bicha” (brasiliam sissy queer) who works on dissident sex issues and criticizes the current anthropocentric reality in its policies of intimacy and relationship.
The artist’s research focuses on the practices of affirming difference and multiple ways of living in the face of hegemonic identities and their logic of domination. He uses writing, the arts and especially contemporary jewelry for this. for being a little explored field in Brazil.
For the artist, gender dissent and gender disobedience create new policies of intimacy and relationship with herself or with the other that partly break the capitalist dystopia that operates the Latin American political dynamics
For her, art in short is a way of responding and conserving life within a paradigm of deprivation and frustration of real wants and needs.
In the work “crossing practices”, the artist occupies the void of the possibilities of incorporating dissident and singular ways of operating the world. and find new forces that will make it through the end of time once again. subverting objects of colonial power was a symbolic form found by the artist to break the limits of malaise established by them.
Building new languages, being aware of the body’s powers in its inevitable production of connections, giving birth to new organs to see new horizons and breaking the pact with death are represented in wearable objects, marked by the struggle of the gesture with the chosen material. Transformed into wearable technology for incorporations through the production of memory. in a fight against forgetting that a sustainable relationship between our desire and our constituent forces is possible.
Whiteness and its relationship with necropolitics is also self-critical. In the sense that our identities do not end our possibilities as a subject and his desiring relationships. It is about reconstituting our identity by disabling its paralyzing affects.
