Born in 1964 in Argentina. Lives and works in Buenos Aires.

Interested in new materials and techniques, Nicola Costantino worked in factories and craft workshops in order to learn and improve her artistic practice. After experimenting with silicone molds and matrices on polyester resin, she created a silicon human skin used to make dresses and extravagant coats, in a series called Human Furriery. Fashion, consumption and the human body as seduction tool are some of the subject matters approached by Costantino.
