Elisa Strinna

The work of Elisa Strinna (1982, Padua) explores the way in which we structure our perception and our fields of knowledge. It does not do so through theoretical reflections, but by studying in depth different natural materials.
While Strinna studies the intrinsic information of these elements, various narratives come to life, narratives that reveal "cultural" aspects intrinsic to Nature, thus challenging any limited conception of cultural and natural processes. What remains, however, are differences in scales, times and languages, which require different forms of translation.
