Letícia Zica grew up in the city of Belo Horizonte, state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, and currently lives and works in São Paulo.

At age 22, her photographic work consists of self- portraits , and part of the tireless exercise, and perhaps endless , to express the ineffable sense of the reality of her country, of the people who cross her path and, of course, of herself.

The textile and the fashion reference is present not only in her photographs, but also the work done as a fashion student, and shows a necessary tool for the composition of her paths. By means of wires, and cloths and possibilities of this constant meeting where you can cover and uncover, winding and unwinding, the folly of being is embodied. [Text written by Lara Teixeira]

About Letícia Zica’s work

The subtlety, precision, desire, eroticism and sensuality are the photographic plans which part of the composition of the Letícia Zica ́s work, a young artist from Sao Paulo, Brazil, which undertook to capture a feeling that part of her body and that mingles with the living spaces, inhabited and experienced by her. Get in her photographic world is entering in a totally erotic and subtle world, is to ask the body in a different and confidentially way, that to meet the skin becomes conductive bond of sensuality caused by the mind, in charge of instincts reminded by what is seen or not seen. She search feel the places we live in different ways and in this way become sensory states, materials and astral, seeking a reality in which we cling to sentimental and nostalgic way. This reality becomes memories and energies that determine the fate of each person. Her work becomes naturally evocations of receiver where the captured images leave a significant mark. At Leticia Zica ́s work, who has in our eyes is the artist herself, who made herself the object of her work. We are facing a self- fiction founded this known creative experience and by great purity: a self creator that makes creature. As emerge from nothing, the body seems to give to the world, but especially to the observer, sometimes invited to a unique experience of sensitivity. This is the female experience, not only evidenced by the naked body figured, but the composition of gestures and her symbolism. And if the feminine archetype refers to the donation of ideas of vulnerability, in the act of creating these are your strengths, offering something new and beautiful. The photos are a commitment to the present, and maybe with the future. A future that begs calm, which can be explored slowly, at a slow pace. The speech, in photography, is through the minutia and can only be reached by long observation, the attention is required. The speech is in the range where the word does not fit . In a continued attempt to recognize itself and the people who surround the sensitive work of the photographer, she always used the body to weave her poetic. A body that, by her eyes, is constantly

fragmented, exposed, amplified. A loose body in space, single and multiple, individual and collective, and above all subject to the elements of space and time. [Text written by Diego Arbelaez, Diego Ramos and Lara Teixeira.] [Official Website]

About “Vestido”

The subtlety, precision, desire, eroticism and sensuality are the photographic plans wich part of the composition of the Letícia Zica ́s work, a young artist from Sao Paulo, Brazil, which undertook to capture a feeling that part of your body and that mingles with the living spaces, inhabited and experienced by her. Get in her photographic world is entering a totally erotic and subtle world, is to ask the body in a different and confidentially, that to meet the skin becomes conductive bond of sensuality caused by the mind, in charge of instincts they are reminded by what is seen or not seen. The participation of São Paulo artist in ABRAHADABRA exhibition held in Bogota at the Contemporary Art Museum of Bogotá and at the Casa Hoffmann gallery includes the perception of the body and divisible space. Search feel the places we live in different ways and in this way become sensory states, materials and astral, seeking a reality in which we cling to sentimental and nostalgic way. This reality becomes memories and energies that determine the fate of each person. Her work becomes naturally in evocations of receiver where the captured images leave a significant mark. The dress triptych relates to the concept, the surrounding reality and its phenomena (physical and metaphysical) that are appropriated by artists, so that the physical matter that makes up his works are loaded, serving as a living memory, fetish, ritual, work total art or complex image that is activated by those who really want to try and make contact, to the extent that we ask ourselves this load concept, and the way in which the artist operates, we reach deeper into the surface that is hidden, discovering its power animist. [By the curator Juan David Quintero Arbelaez.]

About Flowered Darkness

Walter Benjamin insisted that photography preserves so much more intense than painting about the person portrayed. At Letícia Zica ́s work, who has in our eyes is the artist herself, who made herself the object of her work. We are facing a self-fiction founded this known creative experience and great purity: a self creator that makes creature. But this experience is not limited to self-portrait technique. All figuration that Flowered Darkness invites the mystical-mythical experience of creation. In the densest black, emerge a body, gently sloping from shoulders hunched, recumbent and parted lips head. As emerge from nothing, the body seems to give to the world, but especially to the observer, sometimes invited to a unique experience of sensitivity. This is the female experience, not only evidenced by the naked body figured, but the composition of gestures and symbolism of flowers. And if the feminine archetype refers to the donation of ideas of vulnerability, in the act of creating these are your strengths, offering something new and beautiful. Finally, look at flowers, as if the soul announcing its naturalness, asking in return the same contemplation. [Written by Diego Ramos]

About “Não Cálice” project

The Não Cálice project, made by the Brazilian photographer Letícia Zica, is the result of a delicate exercise of release and complaint. A resistance exercise in which women were invited to participate in a rite of love and courage. Initially thought as a feminist fashion collection, the project intended to work with listening to women who have suffered or suffer physical and psychological abuse due to gender condition. During the process, they were interviewed anonymously and through a series of questions put by the photographer, gave clues to the creation of a clothes collection based on the emotions of those who wear them. The contact between these women eventually result in a series of photographs in black and white that was used nudity to refute persistent objectifications present in the female nude theme and bring out not only the aesthetic plurality of women, as well as a symbolic field contrasting strength and fragility, exposure and anonymity.The nude has always been one of the most important themes in painting, sculpture and photography, and for the viewer’s eyes, never was unusual character find the female body exposed as object of the gaze. However, the models we find in art history books and many photographers productions are, in general, anonymous and little is known beyond its forms and reliefs. Under specter of a tradition of male artists, the nude is now discussed critically as never before out and, in this context,Não Cálice project is not only a way to visualize the history of models of your design, but also a sensible way to humanely dialogue through art, on social issues that, today, affecting thousands of women in Brazil and worldwide.The work shows clear relationships in its symbolism. The comb that hangs like an ax stuck to the freshly cut tree, also trains the hair of a woman whose face can not be seen; a woman shows her breasts but the face remains in hidden, tilted to the frame corner; a lady shows the skin and the actions of time on your body. The word Chalice, and his sonorous ambiguity created with the idea of silent, expands the dimensions of work and leads to a receptive conception of women, reinforced by the Christian culture and cultivated in the conservative idea that saw the woman the symbol of subservience. The speech, in photography, is through the minutia and can only be reached by long observation, the attention required. The speech is in the range where the word does not fit.In a continued attempt to recognize itself and the people who surround the sensitive work of the photographer always used the body to weave her poetic. A body that, by her eyes, is constantly fragmented, exposed, amplified. A loose body in space, single and multiple, individual and collective, and above all subject to the elements of space and time. [Text written by the curator Lara Teixeira.]

About “FLANAR” (partnership with a Brazilian jewelry brand)

You must stop to think, see with other eyes. Think slow is a way to understand, be understood by yourself. Loiter in the details, to feel, let the immediacy besides and feel more slowly. Allow yourself to experience the possibility of something happening to touch you. Requires a temporal break, this gesture is almost impossible in these consecutive times. Strolling. “Walking idly, without direction or sense,” this is the invitation that Letícia Zica and Carlos Penna makes you. We travel, we offer you only the object, the raw material, and let it be built by your references, your memories, your affections, we offer you the direction, vision, touch. Stop being a spectator, interact, feel. Are lines, shapes, rings intertwining, creating a system, a gear. A gear to your look. In partnership with the photographer’s self-portraits Letícia Zica, the creations of Carlos Penna gain experienced interpretations. The parts that become more objects, and become felt by the naked body experiences. The metal along the skin, has its time to settle and then comes a picture that reveals the interaction of the body / object, real and unreal. The meaning and experienced. The photos are a commitment to the present, and who knows about the future. A future that begs calm, which can be explored slowly, at a slow pace.
