Elisa Grasso (London, 1988) is an Amsterdam based filmmaker exploring intuition as a creative process. Through analogue and digital image techniques her visuals observe the human subconscious, empathy and memory as a form of artistic therapy.
My therapist once asked me to visualise my child self sitting next to me, sad and crying. “How would you treat her?” my therapist asked. “With compassion, love and care” I answered. “Then that’s how you should treat yourself now, as an adult” she replied.
