Luz Blanco

(*1973, Paris, France)

Luz Blanco is a graduate of the Duperré School of Applied Arts, and lives and works in Paris. She has spent much of her life abroad, particularly in Istanbul and Lisbon, and regularly exhibits internationally. Her drawings, photography and installations explore the potential for dialogue between erasure, memory, and forgetting. Her work propels the viewer into a veritable archaeology of memory. Just as historical and personal memories are intrinsically fragile, her images are haunted by their own disappearance. Her goal: to capture and preserve what remains, however faint the traces.
