Mariela Sancari (b.1976) originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, she lives and works in Mexico City since 1997.
Her work revolves around identity and memory and the way both are mingled and affected by each other. She examines the thin and elusive line dividing memories and fiction.
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 of FotoFest 2014 Biennal. Winner of the VI Bienal Nacional de Artes Visuales Yucatan 2013 and PHotoEspaña Descubrimientos Prize 2014, her work was selected for the XVI Bienal de Fotografía from Centro de la Imagen.
Her first book Moisés was chosen 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.
