Laura Ferro 

(1985)

As an interdisciplinary artist, she makes use of photography, video and writing, which, together with her research of photo, archaeological, and epistolary archives, constitute the body of her work. Her family legacy, her background in psychology and the territory as a limit are some key elements necessary to understand not only her art practice but also the processes of her thoughts and work.
