Maria Laet (1982, Rio de Janeiro) vive e trabalha no Rio de Janeiro. A sua obra é informada por ações, e resulta de gestos subtis e intervenções que provêm da sua prática multidisciplinar. O registo destas pequenas subtilezas, momentos efémeros e limites invisíveis revelam o acto como um arquivo. Laet realizou os seus estudos na PIESP, São Paulo 2011-2012; obteve o seu MA em Theory and Practice of Transnational Art na Camberwell College of Art and Design, Londres, Reino Unido. Participou em residências na Carpe Diem Arte e Pesquisa, Lisboa, Portugal 2010 e em Schloß Balmoral, Bad Ems, Alemanha.
