Ayrson Heráclito is a professor of Visual Arts Course Humanities Center for Arts and Letters of the Federal University of Bahia’s Reconcavo (UFRB). His works transit through installation, performance, photography and audiovisual, dealing often with elements of african-Brazilian culture and have been seen in solo exhibitions in Bahia, shows, festivals and international biennials. at Heráclito’s works, we find dendé, life in colonial Brazil, jerked beef, sugar, fish, sperm and blood, body pain, raptures, apartheids and dreams of freedom. For this edition of the Biennial of Curitiba, Heráclito desires to use up in his works the most primitive light: the fire.
