Short Bio

Analía's works investigate the human body and its relationship with the world, from its morphology and skin to its anthropological character, materializing in a trans-disciplinary way and in several formats. In 2011 she finished her career in Fashion Design at the University of Buenos Aires where she experimented with photography and different digital manipulation techniques, as a search for possible formats of representation in addition to textiles. Since 2012 she exhibits her projects in different cities; Buenos Aires (MACBA, MARQ), New York (The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts), Berlin (Somos Art House, Ufer Studios), as well as lectures at various universities such as The International Center of Photography (NYC), Universidad del Este (La Plata) and the University of Buenos Aires. That same year, Analía founded Elephanto Studio, where she currently works as an art and photography director for the production of visual and audio-visual pieces for different designers, brands and publishers (ELLE Magazine, Sicky Magazine, Schon Magazine, among others). Her projects were selected for the “Itaú Visual Arts Award”, in two consecutive editions, 2014 and 2015. In 2016 she presented her thesis and final project "Entre // Piel" for the Master of Visual Arts (MFA, Plymouth University, UK). It was exhibited in Buenos Aires and Berlin. Continuing with the virtual and objectual exploration of the relationships between body, skin and context, in 2017 she develops, together with Diana Cabeza, the projects: “Topographic Skins” (2017), “Topographies of Rest” (2018), " Mutant Contact" (2019-2020) and the academic project housed at the San Andrés University: "Pre-Laboratory: Material Landscape" (2021). In addition, she continues doing new research questioning the skin in a context of continuous transformation. Her works are present in the book "The Skin Metaphor" developed by Andrea Saltzman and published in 2019.
