Clara Mosconi 

Clara Mosconi (1995, DK) is an artist living and working between Copenhagen, Malmö and Athens. Embedded in research about voice, loss and language, her work often shapes as spatial sound installations where text, sculpture and performance take part. Specifically interested in the underheard aspects of language, Mosconi works with an ever-changing framework of theory, mythology and real life narratives in order to disclose what we fail to hear due to society’s heavy focus on the visual.
