The multi-disciplinary work of FLORIA SIGISMONDI encompasses film, video, photography and installations. Incorporating early film and painterly aesthetics Floria creates a hyper-surrealism based on the figure, using images derived from hallucinatory dream-states. Her videos mix seamlessly with her photography series, and her photographic images translate naturally into mixed-media forms. Floria's images exist in a theatre setting that is both narrative and starkly visual, revealing the poetic and sometimes macabre world.
Most recently, a second photography book titled Immune, a book of photographs from publisher Die Gestalten Verlag, was released in 2005.
Floria Sigismondi was born in Pescara, Italy to opera singing parents. When she was two years old the family immigrated to Canada, settling in the industrial city of Hamilton, Ontario.
Floria has exhibited her photography, film, and sculpture installations in exhibitions internationally in New York, Paris, Toronto, Rome, Los Angeles, Mexico City, London, Italy, Germany, Sweden, and Copenhagen.
Musical artists Floria has worked with include The White Stripes, David Bowie, The Cure, Leonard Cohen, Sigur Ros, Marilyn Manson, and Bjork, among others. Her photographs have been included in group exhibitions with Cindy Sherman, Rebecca Horn, Vanessa Beecroft, Tony Oursler, Donald Lipski, Francesco Clemente, and Joel-Peter Witkin.
