Elisa Von Brockdorff
Elisa von Brockdorff (b. 1982, Malta) received a Masters in Fine Art from the University for the Creative Arts in Canterbury (Kent) in England, where she specialised in both photography and installation art. Elisa graduated with an Hons. degree in Psychology and a Diploma in Art and Design. She has participated in shows locally, as well as in England and Luxembourg. She currently works as a freelance photographer.
Most of her photographic interventions are temporary, some lasting a couple of hours, others lasting a few weeks. In both cases, the work is then documented through the process of photography which keeps the work alive and acts as a testimony to a scene that will soon sieze to exist once the photograph has been taken. Her photographed scenes are constructed by staging familiar and mundane objects within a different context, challenging the objects, and projecting playfulness, irony and humour.
The playfulness of her works never fail to bring out the child inside of us all.
