Florine Leoni is a Swiss artist engaged in interdisciplinary projects at the intersection of art, film, photography and education. Leoni’s artistic practice focuses on exploring and exposing the hidden structures and influences of social and psychological constructs, which are linked to spatial entities and are interwoven with the web of human existence. Her work has been shown in group and solo shows at national and international exhibition venues and film festivals. Leoni has received awards for her artistic projects as well as studio scholarships in Europe, America and Asia.
