Elisa Caldana (*1986 in Pordenone/IT) studied at the IUAV University in Venice between 2005 and 2008, graduating with a degree in visual art and theatre. From 2010 to 2013 she studied fine art under Professor Simon Starling at the Städelschule.

Simon Starling:

The decision to select Elisa Caldana was an easy one. For an artist whose conceptual considerations had remained ephemeral until that point, she was to come up with something 'self-contained’. The result of her always fascinating considerations and explorations were dreamily thrown down notes, snippets of words and scraps of sentences.

Elisa Caldana: 

The work consists of two texts printed on the front and back of a sheet of DIN A4. The front shows a fictitious dialogue, while on the back the situation is described that gave me inspiration for this dialogue.
