In the 70’s starts working with photographic appropriated images, and as a multimedia artist has participated in mail art circuits, making artists books and alternative editions. She is also a pioneer of video art in Brazil. Silveira is known by her parodic explorations of perspective and cast shadows, since 1980, based on anamorphosis and space distortions. Her works made with diversified materials and media (prints, objects, videos, installations, projections), are grounded in her reflections on the illusory nature of images and spaces, either represented or experienced. Much of the artist’s recent site interventions over architectural interiors and facades are expanded versions of her graphic practice. Since the 60’s the artist has exhibited extensively in solo and group shows in Brazil and abroad and participated in several international biennials (São Paulo, Taipei, La Habana, Poznan, Curitiba).
