Speaker - Vanessa Beecroft

 Vanessa  Beecroft  Thumbnail


Vanessa Beecroft is an Italian contemporary artist living in Los Angeles. Vanessa Beecroft works in the gap between art and life. The work is neither performance nor documentary, but something in between. Her live events are recorded through photography and film, but her conceptual approach is actually closer to painting. Beecroft is making contemporary versions of the complex figurative compositions that have challenged painters from the Renaissance onwards. She sets up a structure for the participants in her live events to create their own composition, presenting themselves according to their own internalized aesthetic system.
