Vanessa Beecroft

Artista italo-inglese nata a Genova nel 1969. Frequenta l’Accademia di Brera a Milano dove si laurea nel 1994,  attualmente vive e lavora a Los Angeles. L’artista lavora sul tema del corpo femminile tramite eventi performativi che si strutturano come tableau vivant, ma anche attraverso la fotografia, la scultura e il video, muovendosi tra l’estetica di forme classiche idealizzate e tematiche contemporanee come la costruzione e l’oggettivazione dell’io.
