SECTION : LUMINOUS IMAGES
Originally from Salta Grande, a village in the province of Santa Fe, Argentina, Andrea Ostera (1967) studied Photography at the International Center of Photography in New York. Once she graduated, she moved to Rosario, in her native country, and started her first long-term project in which she experimented with contact boards and projections of objects on sensitive materials. In 1994, she presented this work in an exhibition entitled Ritual de lo habitual. If the investigation of the photographic medium, its possibilities and boundaries is at the heart of her work, the artist does not limit herself to creation. A teacher in a public art school, she was also a curator for the emerging photography program at the Centre for Contemporary Expressions in Rosario from 2005 to 2013 and is a member of the women’s collective Camarada since 2019.
