Cristina Dias de Magalhães was born in 1979 in Luxembourg, she holds a PhD in Fine Arts from University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. She lives and works in Luxembourg. Over the past 15 years, her work has been exhibited in France, Spain, Luxembourg, Portugal, Tunisia, and China. In 2016 she published her essay “Vu(es) des dos: La photographie – espace d’identité et de création” (L’Harmattan, Paris), in which she displays the exploration of her identity through her body and photography. She uncovers a hidden world in a sensitive and personal way from the vantage point of the human back. Her photographic point of view and research demonstrate a unique approach to explore the human body and being through different ways of observing and perceiving. In 2019, she displayed her series “Embody” during the European Month of Photography in Luxembourg and in 2020 during the Salon Turbulences in Paris (France). Her new project “Instincts. Same but different” will be shown in 2020 at the Imago Lisboa Festival (Portugal) and in 2021 at the Centre d’Art Nei Liicht in Dudelange (Luxembourg).
