Francisca Derqui (Argentina) Residence: May to June 2017
Francisca Derqui is a photographer born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Her work is an intersection between photography, motion & design. Influenced by her education in the design field she studies the interaction between what’s material and what’s abstract, natural and artificial, liquid and solid by being conscious about how materiality influences it’s meaning. Her latest projects are a result of refractions and reflections of light that deepen on the contemplation of daily rituals.
Her intention at Studio Kura is to deepen into concepts like silence, stillness and how Itoshima’s context can stimulate the micro-perception of the senses.
