Born in Peru, educated in London, and currently based in both Lima and Copenhagen, Elena Damiani creates installations, objects, and works on paper that focus on the politics of space and memory. Partially trained as an architect, Damiani frequently portrays landscapes and buildings, marking them as sites of loneliness and desolation. She often draws on collage techniques and historical architecture books for inspiration, and the stone and glass in her sculptures recall the environments she studies and refracts. Her work raises questions about legacy and place in relation to monuments and the built environment. Damiani recently won a commission to create an installation in the David Rockefeller Atrium in New York City.
