Nina Franco is a Brazilian visual artist based in London, working with photography and installation.
Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, over the last 8 years she made her journey to different countries as a migrant.
Nina has been exploring political issues in her work to examine and reflect on the intersectionality of women, migration and black identity. She creates through the deconstruction of the functionality of objects as banal as threads to correlate with ancestry, memory and history.
