Flávia Junqueira's production has been marked, since the early years, by the presence of elements that recall childhood; balloons, soap bubbles, pinwheels, merry-go-rounds, stunning landscapes and monumental architectures, culminating in images that are both dreamlike and rigorously constructed. Working mainly in the domains of staged photography and installation, Junqueira creates atmospheres that trigger feelings of playfulness and enchantment. Her production is based on the assumption that it is possible to create, in the openings of adult life, spaces in which instrumental reason is suspended for a moment in favour of an experience of time, body and matter. The balloons, which became recurring characters in Junqueira's images and installations, work as emblems of this alternative form of being in the world. 

Flávia Junqueira lives and works in São Paulo.
