Lyz Parayzo (Campo Grande-Rio de janeiro – RJ - 1994) Manicure, activist, woman trans and whore-porn-terrorist. She began her studies at the School of Visual Arts of Parque Lage and began to invade art galleries as aesthetic-political interventions. Like a virus, she has subverted the power protocols of institutional spaces, blurring the boundaries of what is considered official. She has the body as the main research. Her plastic bombs destabilize heteronormative and colonial technologies, they are anabolic projections of her existence. She has been developing video installations with post-pornographic content, warlike jewels and is currently researching gender and class performance based on color in her "Parayzo Beauty Salon", a traveling device where she acts as a manicure.
