About

Lucía Sciandro (1993) is a Berlin based artist from Maldonado, Uruguay.
When Lucía Sciandro looks at the world, she does not observe the usual distinctions between bodies and other objects. As limbs and torsos are inserted into a landscape they become either extraneous or synonymous with it. But who do they belong to, these object-bodies? They cannot be ‘placed’ or recognized, but they can be dis-placed, into lines of architecture, a stolen glance on a balcony, or as wrapping for tyre-swings.
Often focusing on the trappings and contradictions inherent to modern life, sexuality, and youth she captures the vernacular with subtle, and often dark, humor. There is certainly a surreal character to many of the pictures, because in a world at odds with itself, surrealism combines the absurd, the farcical and the intentional with the pathos of chance.
Apart from photography, Lucia Sciandro is extending her practice to video work. She currently studies Art History at the Humboldt-Universität, in Berlin, and divides her time between Germany and Uruguay. Her work reflects the contrast between Berlin and her Hometown, and the experience of dual citizenship.
