Elba Haxel is a visual artist specialized in art direction, photography and video.
In her artistic practice she reflects on "the uninhabitable" through concepts such as identity and the relationship between space –real and imagined– generating dialogues around memory, time and the materiality of the image to give rise to existential displacements that operate from fragility as a form of resistance. Fiction is the red thread at the center of her creation.
