Bio

b. 1982, Villa María, Argentina.

The work of Leticia Bernaus displays an intriguing take on the conflicting contemporary link between nature and culture. She works with moving image, photography, performance and writing exposing the human body as both, a boundary and a medium to interact with the world. Bernaus superimposes materials and formats, fading the boundaries between animal and mineral, immaterial and physical, documentary and fiction. Her work explores contemporary issues of diversity, displacement and belonging, and forms of colonialism. Bernaus is the recipient of several awards and fellowships including Iila-Fotografia 2017, Renaissance Photography Prize 2017 (finalist), Photoalicante 2016, Mosaicografía 2016, and the University Fellowship at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her work has been exhibited internationally in Argentina, Brazil, England, Italy and the United States. She lives and works in Chicago, IL.
