Fabiana Viso was born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1981. She received her BA Maryland Institute College of Arts and currently lives and works in New York City.
Working with analog photography, Fabiana Viso’s work deals with the experience of space; how we structure lived space and relate to it. The artist disassembles and classifies lived space with the intention to point out things that routinely go unnoticed. The work focuses on the way we understand space, by juxtaposing a quantifiable, homogeneous mathematical notion of it, with the heterogeneous structure of it as we experience space.
Her photographs force the viewer to search for clues within the frame in order to reconstruct what was left out and to question the mechanism used to reproduce the image. It aims to remind the viewer that the power of a photograph lies on what has been left out of the frame.
