Amilcar Packer was born in Santiago, Chile in 1974 and moved to Brazil in 1982. He graduated from the University of São Paulo with a focus in philosophy, and carries a working practice in which he shifts, subverts and re-contextualizes everyday objects, architecture and the human body in action. Packer performs his work and usually presents them in photographs, videos and installations. His work is based on ideas about the organization of the world as language and construction where art practices point to the possibility of renewal and invention of modalities of seizure, behavior and subjectivation, resistance and friction to confront hegemonic and homogenizing historical, political and social structures that rigidly determine individuals. In recent years, he developed and organized presentations and meetings involving reading formats, actions and talks, as well as walks and meals. Amilcar has participated in many solo and group shows, workshops, and lectures.
