Amalia Vekri’s work through painting and occasionally sculpture, writing or sound, explores alternative portraitures of the female body, as well as the ways in which it is presented and represented in our current digitalized era. Her work reflects on female empowerment and transcendental nature, within a world of constant flux and ambiguity.
