(1993, Antwerp, Belgium)

Florinda Ciucio is an artist working with film, video and installation. In 2018, she graduated from LUCA School of Arts in Brussels with a Master's degree in Audiovisual Arts. Since then, her work travels between the exhibition space and cinema. 


In 2021 she was selected as one of 10 emerging visual artists laureates in Belgium through the national Art Contest competition. The same year she was selected for a development lab of the Flemish Audiovisual Fund, for experimenting with children's documentary film, afterwards being one of 5 recipients of the production grant. In 2022 she was selected for an artist residency at Cité Internationale des Arts de Paris, supported by the Department of Culture of Flanders. In 2023 she was the recipient of the VOCATIO award for young artists and researchers in Belgium in the category ’performing arts’ as a film director and audiovisual artist, sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belgium. Her work has been shown in Beursschouwburg Brussels, Z33 Centre for contemporary art, IDFA Film festival, Dokleipzig film festival, National museum of contemporary art of Estonia, Italian Cultural Insitute of Amsterdam, Centro Luigi di Sarro in Rome, a.o.


In both her films and installations, She often centers the element of time and contemplation, working with concepts as cycles, rhythm, repetition and routines. She aims to create an immersive, sensorial and meditative space with image and sound, a place submerging you into your own subconsciousness, with a strong focus on landscapes and the framing of nature.
