IVANA VOLLARO

Ivana Vollaro (b. 1971, Buenos Aires) works on the links between word and image, investigating the boundaries between the formal and the informal, the language and the errors that generate those limits.

Since her early projects, Vollaro´s work has been inscribed within Conceptualism and the tradition of Visual poetry, Graphic art and Mail art. Through the subtlety of humor, her works become a territory for reflection on form, translation and identity. Vollaro’s production crosses multiple media, including publications and artist’s books, photography, video and installation, as well as performance and sound pieces. 

Vollaro studied Arts (1993-1997) and Law (1989-1992) at the Universidad de Buenos Aires She attended Mirtha Dermisache’s workshop and since the late 90s she has participated in experimental poetry festivals and biennials.
