Rooted in the SaÌƒo Paulo contemporary art scene, Laima Leytonâ€™s credentials in the world of music are firmly established as one half of Mixhell alongside her husband Iggor Cavalera and for her work with Soulwax. Her last work, â€˜Homeâ€™, is a conceptual double album released by DEEWEE in collaboration with The Vinyl Factory that revolves around routine, power, life and death. She has performed her music in peopleâ€™s homes, creating intimate spaces for audiences to reflect upon themselves. In 2021, Laima will explore opportunities where the audience can experience sound as a reflective and healing tool.
With In Place of War, Laima expands her creativity as an activist working with creatives in conflict and crisis areas by empowering people to make a change through creativity.
With Richard Saltoun Gallery, Laima draws on her multifaceted identity as a producer, musician, activist, artist, mother and teacher to create eight unique sound pieces to accompany the programme â€˜On Hannah Arendt: Eight Proposals for Exhibitionsâ€™, engaging with themes of Infinite Past, Infinite Future and Now, Culture and Nature, Lack of Truth, and Spiritual Science.
Laima has been selected as a resident artist for the Participatory Residency at Gasworks Gallery in London for 2021.
