Radio Interview with artist Mariela Sancari and co-director Sonja Thomsen on WUWM’s Lake Effect, February 2, 2017



Mariela Sancari was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1976. She has lived and worked in Mexico City since 1997.  Her work revolves around identity and memory and the way both are mingled and affected by each other; and examines the thin and elusive line dividing memories and fiction.

Sancari has received numerous awards for her work: selected by curator Susan Bright to be included in the 2015 Ones to Watch issue of BJP Magazine, she was also named one of the Discoveries of the Meeting Place FotoFest 2014 Biennal. Winner of the VI Bienal Nacional de Artes Visuales Yucatán 2013 and PHotoEspaña Descubrimientos Prize 2014, her work was selected for the XVI Bienal de Fotografía of Centro de la Imagen and received an Honorable Mention in XI Bienal Monterrey FEMSA, with her series Moisés.   Her first book Moisés was selected by several curators and reviewers, such as Sean O’Hagan, Tim Clark, Erik Kessels, Jörg Colberg, Larissa Leclair, Yumi Goto and Colin Pantall, among others, as one of the Best Photobooks published in 2015.
