ABOUT

Ivana Larrosa is a visual artist and arts writer from Spain living in New York City. She creates video installations in response to spatial environments, often merging elements of fantasy, humor, and daily life into performances and photo-based objects.  Larrosa is interested in conceptual strategies that have to do with the body as an object of study and a medium to approach memory, trauma, perception and architecture.

 

Her Love for the Arts developed while working as an art writer for the Spanish newspaper ‘Diari de Tarragona’ in 1997, culture writer of Barrios de Iruña Magazine in 1998 and as founder and creator of the photo magazine ‘Zero Zone’ in 2006.

Her work has been shown at at Art venues and Museums including
Anthology Film Archives, International Center of Photography, The Center for Fine Art Photography, Espacio Aglutinador of Havana, Plana Space in São Paulo, Project Space Kleiner Salon in Berlin, Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera, Soler Blasco Archaeological and Ethnographic Museum, and Galeria Sicart, among others. Larrosa's work is at the permanent collection of Foundations, Museums, Institutions and Collections such as Bassat Private Collection and Spanish National Museum of Sculpture.

Ivana Larrosa has received several grants such as Lluís Carulla Individual Artist Grant and Museum of Tortosa Artist in Residency, and numerous awards, including Ramon Aloy International Photographic Award and Camera Club of New York Baxter St, Annual Juried Competition. She has curated shows for Save Art Space and Plaxall Gallery in New York.
