This small town symbolized the archetype of pastoral American life. Yet this idyllic place was also held hostage by a dark past, manifesting in the racial tensions that scar much of American history.
Jaqueline Larsen (1990, Buenos Aires, Argentina) is a visual artist and a photographer. Her background in fine arts gives her photography great sensitivity, both in commercial work as in personal projects with a documentary approach. She portrays mostly women but also finds beauty in landscape.
Through her work she investigates about the concept of identity, the territory, the body and its relationship with the environment, from a poetic and symbolic perspective. Through interventions in the landscape and visual parallelism with the body, she creates a narrative that, while part of personal experiences, allows the work to gain a universal sense, susceptible to being read and interpreted by others.
She has exhibited her work in Argentina (Mar del Plata and Buenos Aires), Spain (Málaga and Madrid) and France (Arles).
She was selected to exhibit in SUBLIMATION 2019, in Voies-Off Festival, Arles.
