Skull Sessions No. 1 & No. 2
The Skull Sessions No.2 is a journal made from a conversation with Brazilian artist Alice Miceli. Miceli’s dark and hugely ambitious Chernobyl Project involved five years of research to invent devices and methodologies to record radioactive landscape in Eastern Europe. Her installation at the 2010 São Paulo Biennale incorporated negatives burned by exposure to radiation. The conversation was recorded in 2012 in New York City.
Alice Miceli lives and works between Berlin, Rio de Janeiro, and New York City. Her work has been featured in the Sao Paulo Biennial, Sao Paulo, Brazil; the Sydney Film Festival, Sydney, Australia; and the Mediations Biennial in Poznan, Poland. She has received fellowships at the MacDowell Colony, Peterborough, NH; and the Djerassi Program, Woodside, CA. Her first solo publication - Chernobyl Project - was published by Several Pursuits, Berlin. Miceli studied film at the Ecole Superieure d’Etudes Cinematographiques in Paris, and history of art and architecture at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Jane.
