Marisa Culatto, born in Gran Canaria, lives and works in the UK.
Was trained in analogue photography in Gran Canaria and Barcelona, but it was the encounter with digital photography what consolidated her artistic practice as her interest lies in pushing – blurring – the boundaries of photography into the language and practice usually associated with other mediums.
Constraints, domesticity and daily rituals are at the centre of her practice. She is also interested in the notion of reality being a construct, and, therefore, much of her work addresses contradictions, misperceptions and/or a degree of visual ambiguity.
Culatto has exhibited her work mostly in Spain and the UK. In 2011 she received the AlNorte Grant within the X National Contemporary Arts Week of Asturias, Spain and was finalist of the Fondation Scheinder, France, Contemporary Talents competition 2015/16 and Finalist of the VIA Arts Prize 2017, London. Recently Soho House Collection has acquired one of her works.
