Elisa Insua was born in Buenos Aires in 1990. In 2011 she completed her Bachelor's degree in Economics and Business at Torcuato Di Tella University. At the age of sixteen, she started her practice as a self-taught artist, creating assemblages and sculptures with discarded materials. She gradually fused her artistic practice with concepts related to economics, overconsumption, and human insatiability. In the following years, she studied sculpture with Miguel Harte and was part of group critiques with Fabiana Barreda, Diego Bianchi, and Ernesto Ballesteros. In 2014, she had her first solo show, "Stairway to Heaven" at Plataforma (Córdoba, Argentina), followed by "More is More" at Espacio Modos (Buenos Aires, 2016) and “Quid Pro Quo” at APPA (Madrid, 2018). In 2019 she had her largest show to date, “Virtual Vanitas” at Usina del Arte (Buenos Aires, Argentina). She recently opened “The Path of Least Resistance”, a solo exhibition at Materials for the Arts in New York. In 2021, she presented her installation “Archaeology of Desire” at Museo Sívori and Museo Perlotti (Buenos Aires, 2021). Her work has been included in numerous group exhibitions, including “Ludica” at MACSur (Museo de Arte Contemporáneo del Sur, Buenos Aires, 2018), “Memento Mons” at Beaux-Arts Mons Museum (Mons, Belgium, 2019), “Slight Omission” at Cerquone Projects (Madrid, 2018) and “Proyecto Vergel” at María Casado HG (Buenos Aires, 2016). In 2015, 2016, and 2017 she participated in the ArteBA art fair (Buenos Aires, Argentina), and in 2022 she exhibited at Zona Maco (Mexico City). She has done two artist residencies in the USA: Vermont Studio Center (2016) and Materials for the Arts in New York (2021).
