Elena Borghi

Born in the midst of a summer storm immediately leaving her parents baffled; her father, a psychic and an inventor, when he first sees her, cries: “She looks like an asshole”. Her mother, Australian and grown up running barefoot through tobacco fields, is proud she still is one. Thanks to theater and opera, turning fifteen, she twigs she wants to become a scenographer. At present she is a freelancer scenographer, she designs and manufactures fittings for shop windows, exhibitions, events, interior design, advertising, photo shoots and any space which is hungry of ethereal presences. She draws on walls, on paper and on any possible surface where her black stroke can flow. In January 2015 she had a monograph on her most significant papercraft works published:“PAPER VISIONS”.
