BIOGRAPHY

Elisabetta Benassi (born 1966 in Rome, Italy) makes reference in her work to the cultural, political and artistic traditions of the twentieth century, including psychoanalysis and other controversial themes of our age; emerging from the historical background of her pieces is a questioning of contemporary identity and the conditions of the present. She uses various media - installation, photography, video - as devices in emotionally engaging works that shift the moral focus onto the viewer while tracing troubled and contested timelines.

Elisabetta Benassi  is represented by Magazzino d'Arte Moderna, Rome.
