Maria Luigia Gioffre
artist / photographer

Maria Luigia Gioffrè (b.1990) was born in a small village in southern Italy. After a BA in Political Science, she approached photography and theatre and she graduated with her MA from Central Saint Martins School of Arts (UAL) in London.

Her research explores language as performative process at the core of a multidisciplinary practice on narration, time and absence. Starting as photographer, Maria Luigia drives forward a work which leads from visual to performance. Her poetics mainly play with love and lost transforming the personal in universal and vice versa.

Her works have recently been selected for: Celeste Prize Award (2017), Tate Modern Exchange (2017), Art Night London Associate (2017), Zurich meets London Festival (2016).
