A graduate in cinema and 3D animation at
the Melies School in São Paulo (2009) and in photography, contemporary dance,
and conceptual art at the Beaux-Arts in Paris (2020), Daniel Nicolaevsky Maria
is a multi-media artist. His work belongs between conceptual art and
performance, and his practice, at once emancipating, radical, and poetic,
explores the notions of circulation, attachment, belonging, and memory.
Daniel Nicolaevsky Maria draws from the
memories from his childhood in Brazil and the history of minority individuals to
reflect multiple existences. His work was exhibited and performed in several
international art centres: Centre for Cultural Diversity (São Paulo), Centre
Pompidou (Paris), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Centre National de la Danse
(Pantin), Sogetsu Art Centre (Tokyo ), and Rio Art Museum (Brazil).
