Alice Miceli was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, where she is currently based. Miceli’s work applies investigative travel and historical research to chart the virtual, physical and cultural manifestations of trauma inflicted on social and natural landscapes. In creating alternative photographic documents on extreme, socio-political issues, Alice has explored sites such as the Tuol Sleng Prison in Cambodia and the Exclusion Zone of Chernobyl. Her current research focuses on photographic representations of landscape in particular those looking into the space of landmine fields.
Miceli's work has been widely show in venues that include the Sao Paulo Biennale, Nara Roesler Gallery (Sao Paulo), Max Protetch Gallery (New York). Exhibitions include the Japan Media Arts Festival (Tokyo), TRANSITIO_MX festival (Mexico City), the Transmediale Festival (Berlin) and ZKM Center (Karlsruhe). She is the recipient of several Residency awards such as MacDowell, Bogliasco, Bemis, Djerassi, and the Dora Maar House.
