In 2012, young Aline Baiana, living in Rio de Janeiro since the age of 14, had already completed film school and switched from documentary photography to activism after she earnied a degree in Environmental Management. While protesting in the streets of Rio de Janeiro against the relaxation of Brazil’s Forestry Code regulations, she was awarded a scholarship to attend a two-year course at the Parque Lage School of Visual Arts, which opened doors to the contemporary art world. She then began to include videos, objects, and installations in her work, and she was invited to exhibitions, festivals, and shows in different cities around Brazil. In 2019, she participated in the Sharjah Biennial 14, in the United Arab Emirates, with a work on the economic and environmental impacts of hydroelectric power plants. In 2020, she joins the Berlin Biennale with an installation piece that references the environmental crimes caused by the collapse of mining dams in Brazil.
