Solon Ribeiro is an artist, curator and professor, graduated in art and communication with a specialization in photography from L'École Superieure des Arts Decoratifs, Paris, in 1991. He works in the investigation of intersections between photography, cinema, scenography, installation and performance. Through the recontextualization of cinematographic images and frames from narrative montages, the artist problematizes the status of the archive in order to dismantle its intimate relationship with the past. In order to release the image to new forms and meanings, he seeks to explore its magical and metaphysical aspects. He is the author of the books LambeLambe: Pequena história da fotografia popular, Fotografia Contemporânea: Linguagem e Pensamento e Perdeu a Memória e Matou o cinema. He participated in group exhibitions at Itaú Cultural, São Paulo (2011); at the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro (2011); at the Museum of Modern Art of São Paulo (2007 and 2000); and presented individually Quando o cinema se desfaz em fotograma, FUNARTE, Rio de Janeiro (2009). He lives and works in Fortaleza.
