Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1991, Florencia is currently living in San Francisco, California.
Florencia is an interdisciplinary artist, working with textiles, photography, painting and performance. Her practice focuses on the constructs of femininity and gender performance. Life performances documented through photography bring to life the themes and characters developed throughout her art practice: hair: beauty & disgust, body image & self objectifying, pleasure & slut calling. Florencia weaves and paints fabrics that later become into experimental garments and wall pieces, each embodying themes of female gender performance.
