With a background in photography, Laureana Toledo’s practice has developed to incorporate various media, chosen in relation to a specific concept or theme of the work. Laureana is inspired by the imperceptible or transient moments of the everyday, speculating on how such phenomena can gain new forms of visual presentation. Her work often involves systematic and repetitive interventions into different media (texts, books, photographs, painitngs, etc.) to re-code their existing narratives. Laureana also takes this approach into her exploration of the history of rock music, one of her passions.
