Serena Vittorini (born in 1990) is a visual artist based in Brussels. After graduating in Psychology she decided to devote herself entirely to the study of Photography and Communication, at ISFCI and IED. At the beginning of her research path, she has been interested in the analysis of the processes of modification of places and the relationship between human presence and representation of urban space. In recent years she has been working on projects concerning the relationship between identity and memory, integrating in her research photographs of her own production, archive images, installations and audio works.
