Liza Ambrossio (1993) is a multidisciplinary artist who lives and works mainly between Spain, France, and Mexico. After completing her Bachelor’s degree from the Faculty of Political Sciences of UNAM, Mexico City, specializing in film, politics, and journalism, she received multiple scholarships in the United States and Europe, the most notable being the Discoveries scholarship for the Master in Photography and Artistic Projects at the PIC.A School awarded by the PHotoEspaña festival and the Editorial La Fabrica house in Madrid, Spain.
Her universe breathes a real attempt to understand the powers and weaknesses of the mind as a way to scrutinize the human experience, which goes through the past, present and future time. Ambrossio is using symbols alluding to witchcraft, mythology, memories and legends that she mixes with her written narrative, photographs, installations, performance and videos. Her approach has an intense but anarchic relationship with chance and instinct, and aims to destabilize the female canons that threaten the possibility of exceeding ethnic, sexual, moral, religious and political limits.
Her work has been exhibited in Europe, the United States, South Korea and Mexico, in museums such as the Göteborgs Konstmuseum, the Hasselblad Center in Sweden and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Mexico, as well as international fairs such as Art Basel, JustMad, Photo London and UNSEEN.
Ambrossio’s imagery has also been reviewed by The British Journal of Photography, The Magnum Foundation, El País, El mundo, Der Greif, GUP, Unseen magazine, Vogue Italy, L’Officiel and Lens Culture. She has received the FNAC New Talent award in Spain and Voies Off in Arles, France in 2018, the Flash Forward in Canada, the PhEST in Italy and the PHmuseum New Generation Grant 2019 in the United Kingdom. She is currently a member of the artist community of the French state within Casa Velazquez in Madrid, Spain.
