Regina Silveira’s artistic research questions the orthodox, preestablished forms of repre-sentation, leading her to work with new possibilities of signification. Her works explore the architectural and contextual space, generally evoking a sense of uncanniness through the displacement of the commonplace, that is, our common references. Regina Silveira is known for her research into the principles of perspective, tridimensionality, and the study of shadows, which she employs in large site-specific installations, vinyl cutouts, luminous projections, works in printmaking, embroidery, porcelain, digital videos, etc.With a BA in arts from the Instituto de Artes do Rio Grande do Sul (1959), an MA (1980) and PhD in art (1984) from the School of Communication and Arts of the University of São Paulo (ECA USP), her career as a professor includes stints of teaching at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez; at FAAP, São Paulo; and at ECA USP.
