Silvie Eidam was born in Frankfurt am Main in Germany and is currently living in transition, moving between Brazil and Germany.
Her grandfather was the painter Wilhelm Eidam who encouraged her artistic production from childhood on. She studied under the local artists Julia Ovrutschski, Andrea Simon and Beatrix Pohle-Stiehl, and continued her formal education studying Fine Arts at the University of Brasilia and at the Goldsmiths College in London.
While being at university she was an active member of feminist activist groups in Brasília and London and focused in her art on representations of the female body and political identities in a wide variety of media, participating since 2005 at several collective exhibitions.
She received a scholarship for five years from the swiss GEK trust until 2011 to continue her artistic development and financial support by a private collector in 2015 to conclude her series on masculinities.
In her current work she mainly focuses on the subject matters of masculinities, problematizing the representations of bodies and their impact on the construction of the relation between subject and object in visual arts.
