Liza Ambrossio (1993, MX-FR)
Is a multi-disciplinary artist who lives and works mainly between Spain, France, and Mexico. She began her artistic practice at the age of sixteen when she asked a ancient maid from her mother’s house to steal the photographs from the family albums looking for traces of a dark past for which there seemed to be no evidence. At the same time in her native Mexico City, Ambrossio portrayed her transition from adolescence to adulthood looking for ways to survive from a distance during a chaotic and stormy process of emancipation from her family. After the suicide of her roommate and best friend from adolescence, she inherited his job as a “nota roja” photographer (police press), covering murders, accidents and torture by drug traffickers at dawn for a local newspaper. Ambrossio goes on a journey of psychic and physical discovery flooded with disturbances, magic, trauma, dreams, and visions. In these moments, she discovers that the hell inside contains the same hell that explodes outside.
