About Mariela


Mariela Sancari is an argentinian photographer living in Mexico City for 16 years.

She examines personal relationships related to memory and the thin and elusive line dividing memories and fiction. Having a twin sister is determinant in her vision and way of experiencing the world. That is why she is interested in the notion of otherness and uses fiction as her primary tool to represent the contents of the vast and deep tunnels of the unconscious.
