BIOGRAPHY

Elizabeth AroBorn in Argentina, she has been based in Spain for 15 years and in Italy for the past 8 years. She studied arts at the National School of Fine Arts Prilidiano Pueyrredón in Buenos Aires and Art History at Buenos Aires University. She was awarded grants to be a resident artist at Fondazione Ratti in Como and Fondation Australis in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
Her work features in the collections of GAM (Galleria Arte Moderna Torino), MAMbA and MACRO (Museum of Contemporary Art Rosario), and in private collections in Argentina and Europe.

Being interested in the psychological and emotional relationship of human beings with their environment, Elizabeth Aro explores the different ways architectural surroundings influence the spectator – both mentally and physically.

Intervening or integrating, she engages with specific installations, creating places of poetic density where imagination and reverie are bleeding into reality. She creates interdisciplinary media installation in gallery context and public spaces including sculpture, photos, drawings and video.
