We encounter so many inspiring makers and performers, each one of them so rich in their work, so specific in their approach to a creation, so different from each other.
And we are curious about them.
For that we ask several artists to let us enter their “kitchen” and have a look at their universes, at what inspires them and to their creative process.
Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti is the first one to invite us in her artistic universe.
