Lucrezia de Fazio (1993, Rome)

Visual artist working across drawing, performance, writing and photography researching on the sphere of intimacy, sexuality and the discourse with the other - the subconscious. 

Her work has its roots in sculpture, in the transformation of the matter and the relation between the organic and the inorganic. 

Drawing is the ground of her artistic research; not only in the more traditional way of ink on paper, but is the supporting frame of video installations, sculptures and performances. Process is key in Lucrezia’s practice; she’s interested on the research of the experience, the impact with the work, from the time of the creation of the work itself, to the effect on the audience.

Lucrezia works on encounters, with herself, her own body, its texture, it’s shape, or with someone else, remembering the moment the encounter happened and revealing it. It is about intimacy and shared intimacy. It is about love. A love story. Where encounter, sex, obsession, abandonment, pain a pleasure are its components. 

Her work has been exhibited in the UK, Italy, Poland, Norway and Mexico.
