Bio

The work of Leticia Bernaus (b. Argentina) 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 has been exhibited internationally in Argentina, Brazil, Spain, England, Italy, Australia and the United States. Bernaus received her Master of Fine Arts at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Currently, she is a 2019-2020 BOLT resident artist at Chicago Artist Coalition, and an Adjunct Professor of Photography at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She lives and works in Chicago, USA.
