1981, lives and works in São Paulo.
Born in São Paulo in 1981, after beginning her studies in her hometown, Renata joined Christian Boltanski’s atelier at École des Beaux-Arts de Paris, where she finished her masters degree.
Using everyday elements that normally tend towards the mundane, her work reflects on the imminence ofdisappearance and the brutality of impermanence. In exploring the slender space between what we see and what remains unnoticed, Har creates an ambiance of latent instability that tells stories of memory, identity and invisibility.
Weaving the semantic threads that connect one object to another, one material to another, one signifier to an- other, the volatility of human life emerges as well as and the timeless presence of things and feelings in such life. There is a sense of tension and expectation, a constant reminder, that art is about continuing processes rather than reifying artifacts.
