Art transports. It taps gently on the cracks in our reality until they splinter, falling away in fragments to reveal a world beyond. The artists in as you summon other worlds capture this moment – of crossing boundaries, of peering into alternate universes, of communing with unseen forces – in ways language never fully can.
Florencia Montefalcone (Buenos Aires, b.1991) is a multidisciplinary artist with a deep-rooted passion for performance, photography, and textiles.
Her work delves into the intricate realm of women's image creation and portrayal, shedding light on the construction process and the profound impact these representations have on our self-appreciation and perceptions of success.
With a strong advocacy for feminism and an unwavering belief in the transformative power of authenticity, Montefalcone's artistic practice serves as a powerful voice for societal change.
Her creations encompass unique hand-painted silk and woven garments, each bearing the essence of empowerment and individuality. By challenging societal norms and embracing the limitless possibilities of self-expression, Florencia invites viewers to join her on a journey of reflection and reimagining the narratives that shape our lives.
