About Fina

Born in 1983, Fina Ferrara is a Mexican performance and video artist. She started her artistic career as a professional classical ballet dancer at the age of 10. Seeking to exploit her interpretative skills, she incorporates contemporary dance and theatre into her training later in her career. Exploring movement is a fundamental element in her work. In 2010, she decided to step out of the stage and interact intimately with the audience, performing in art galleries, museums, and art fairs, in tandem with producing video art as her second, yet strong, form of expression. As a multidisciplinary artist, she creates sculpture, photography, painting, installation, and original music pieces for her work, collaborating with other artists as well.

Her work has been exhibited in London, Paris, New York, Venice, Rome, Madrid, Marbella, Turkey, Colombia, Brazil, Chicago, and, of course, Mexico. She has been awarded the Power of Creativity Art Prize and Faces of the Peace Art Prize by Contemporary Art Curator Magazine, in 2021 and 2022 respectively, the International Prize Leonardo da Vinci, The Universal Artist, in 2023, and selected as one of the Top Contemporary Artists to watch in 2024 by Contemporary Art Curator Magazine.

Disturbed by how human boundaries are often penetrated through interactions with others, violence, hatred, and abuse are stepping stones in her performances. Through expelling these emotions, Fina questions life and social standards, highlighting our areas of discomfort.

For Fina, performance is an ongoing act of collective self-evolution.
