Artists Angela Detanico and Rafael Lain have worked collaboratively as Detanico Lain since the early 1990s.

The duo have developed a practice based on the displacement of meaning, in an interweaving of form and content that makes full use of design and display technologies. Simple procedures of logic produce compelling visual poetry and the subtle irony and irreverence in their work playfully deconstructs the complexity of the contemporary world.

In 2006 they participated, with several other Latin American artists, in the Zoo Portfolio Latin American edition, a portfolio of works curated by Adriano Pedrosa, published by Archeus and sold to raise funds for the Zoo Art Fair for emerging artists.

The duo represented Brazil at the Venice Biennale in 2007.
