Carla Chaim lives and works in São Paulo. She graduated in Fine Arts at Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado – FAAP, 2004, where she also completed a Master's degree in Art History, 2007. With her drawing, video and installation she approaches a wide range of everyday issues. The work is created in the field of experience, allowing for coincidental, accidental and unexpected connections. The artist works with the notion of control in her pieces, both through pre-established rules and in her physical movements in making a drawing, for example, using the body as an important tool in this process. Carla Chaim participated in Artist Residencies: Arteles, Finland, 2013; Halka Sanat Projesi, Turkey, 2012; The Banff Centre for the Arts, Canada, 2010. In 2014, she had her first solo exhibition, in Lisbon, Portugal, at Carpe Diem Art and Research, and participated in group shows such as "Afinidades", at Instituto Tomie Ohtake, and "Entre dois mundos", at Museu Afro-Brasil, in São Paulo, Brazil. Received several awards, among them Prêmio Funarte de Arte Contemporânea, and Prêmio Energias na Arte, at Instituto Tomie Ohtake.
