Cyshimi | Viviane Lee Hsu (1998)

Chinese and Taiwanese Brazilian artist based in São Paulo.

Their work explores issues of ancestry, identity, beauty and body through their nail research. For Cyshimi, nails are “Performative Sculptures”, a term coined by the artist who affirms that their nails are not just a static object, but a sculpture that shapes the performativity of bodies. They are a symbol of resistance, empowerment and identity. Cyshimi sees each nail as a new world, built by shapes, colors and textures that, when together, cross those who see and use them.
