Aruna Canevascini is a Swiss based photographer.
She studied photography at ECAL and at CEPV (école de photographie de Vevey).
Her work Villa Argentina is is selected for the Swiss Design Award, 2017.

This work is a visual exploration of the relationship I have with my mother, set in our family house in South of Switzerland.

My mother is an iranian artist. She spent her childhood in Tehran as a secluded child, a condition of isolation which she somehow replicates in her adult life.

As I grew up in Switzerand, Iranian culture come to me as a distant echo.

The work represents the house of Villa Argentina as a stage for her poetic universe and a backdrop for the poetic arrangements of objects I made for the camera.

In this creative solitude à deux, the work attempts to explore issues of domesticity, the reletionship to femininity and the matter of migration.
