Elisabetta Benassi

Elisabetta Benassi (Rome, 1966)
With references to the artistic and political culture of 20th century, to psychoanalysis as well as to controversial contemporary topics, Elisabetta Benassi’s work runs along a difficult space, that of the present.

In her artistic production there is a recurrent use of installations, videos, and photography which function as devices to initiate not only strong emotional suggestions, but also to provide a new moral focus in the viewer.
In the background, pressing questions loom on present condition and identity, on their relationships with the past and a push to reconsider it in a new light.
