Printed by Picto: Francesca Beltran at Venice Biennale
Francesca Beltran at Venice Biennale 2017
Francesca Beltran is a mexican visual artist and producer who is based in New York. Her focus is to explore the paradox of feeling alone in an over-connected world. At a time when technology is taking over, she turns to analog cameras to discover metaphysical perspectives that question the nature of reality.
Francesca’s images aim to convey dissonance between time, body, and space, a phenomenon she has spent time analyzing over the course of her life. By exploring new environments, concepts like isolation, desolation, and the passing of time become apparent in different subjects, and feed into her study of alienation. The intention is to transform any given place into somewhere else that does not exist, in order to challenge the notion of belonging. Francesca Beltran’s current work focuses primarily on the paradox of feeling alone in an over-connected world and how this is affecting collective behavior.
Francesca’s work is currently being exhibited at the 2017 Venice Biennale, the European Cultural Centre which is organized by the GAA Foundations. This year’s exhibition themes is “PERSONAL STRUCTURES: Open Borders” in two of its Palazzos in Venice: Palazzo Mora and Palazzo Bembo. Which is focused on an open forum for discussion to take place on the different expressions of contemporary art that break away from any ideological, political and geographical barriers.
