Luiza Margan is a visual artist whose projects examine relations between political ideologies, personal histories, and their shifts that shape nature, public space and social power relations. Employing various strategies of historical research, field research and exploring spaces of public use, her works challenge the normative ways of seeing and shaping public memory, tangling the very power structures that define spatial, work and gender politics. Her works include public actions and interventions as well as installations with sculpture, film and photography.
