After having had Jair Bolsonaro for four years as Brazil’s president, the country is still recovering from his destructive government. Bolsonaro didn’t get re-elected in 2022, but his supporters are still giving continuation to what he preached: hate speech, violent acts, homophobia, transphobia and racism. He left a polarised country, with the extreme right feeling more powerful than ever.

Nayara Leite’s exhibition “The Green and Yellow are Ours as Well” contains a continuation to her research about the effects of Bolsonarismo in Brazil regarding the LGBTQ+ community. All the works – some old, some new – refer to this research, and they also bring hopes and wishes for the future of her homeland.


The exhibition has been supported by Billedkunstnernes Vederlagsfond.


Nayara Leite (b. 1989) is a Brazilian artist and writer based in Bergen, Norway. She holds an MFA from the Bergen Art Academy and an MA in Photojournalism & Documentary Photography from the London College of Communication.

Nayara works across text, performance, analogue photography, film and installation. Through autobiographical narrative, political news, archival material and letters to close friends, she produces a portrayal of the reality in which the LGBTQ+ community lives in Brazil and in Norway.

She has exhibited and/or held performances at Bergen Kunsthall, Palmera, Lydgalleriet, Isotop, Bergen Kjøtt and KODE 2 in Bergen; Preus Museum in Horten; Studio 17 in Stavanger; Kunstnerforbundet and Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo; and Momentum Biennale in Moss.
