(1993,  Belgium)

 

Florinda Ciucio is an artist working with installation, video and film based in Brussels. Born and raised in Belgium with a Belgian mother and Argentinian father, she quickly discovered the unIversal language of image. Her work often revolves around societal issues and the element of time, with concepts based on cycles, rhythm, repetition and routines. There’s a strong focus as well on landscapes and nature as a way to escape the uncertainty of the state of the world, what parallels can we draw to regain some sense and security? In both her films and installations, she tries to create an immersive and meditative space with image and sound, a place open for communal contemplation.

 

In 2018 she graduated from LUCA School of Arts Brussels with a Master’s degree in Audiovisual Arts, since then her work travels in between the exhibition space and cinema. Often in her installations she works with black surfaces and objects to redefine the immersion of the cinematic experience by abstracting and recreating it in other spaces. 

 

In 2020 she was selected to start develop a short documentary film for the Belgian national children's television channel KETNET, as part of an initiative to involve young authors into the children's film industry. In 2021 she was selected as one of 10 promising artists in Belgium through the ArtContest competition, followed by an exhibition in Vanderborght-complex in Brussels. In 2022 she was selected through the Belgian department of Culture and Arts for a granted artist residency at Cité Internationale des Arts de Paris.
