Luz Blanco is a French/Spanish artist based in Paris. She works between Paris and Istanbul.
Her drawings, photography, and installations explore the potential for dialogue between erasure, memory, and forgetting. Her works invite a metaphorical approach to the notion of “soft error”: the type of mistake that poses no threat to the system that produced it. Luz relies on an extensive drawing process to depict the underpinnings and mechanical disruptions of image and text, propelling the viewer into a veritable archeology of memory. Just as historical and personal memories are intrinsically fragile, her images are haunted by their own disappearance. Her goal: to capture and preserve what remains, however faint the traces.
