Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Silvia Levenson immigrated to Italy in 1981, during the "disappearances" of the Dirty War.
In her work she mainly uses glass because she considers it an ambiguous element. It is a material that we all know well because it protects and insulates our homes, we use it to preserve our food and drinks, but somehow, we also know that it is fragile, that it can break into thousands of pieces and hurt us. For the artist, it becomes the ideal material to show the ambiguity of human relationships and things that exist but are hidden behind the thousand folds of what we call reality. In 2004, Levenson received the Rakow Commission Award from the Corning Museum of Glass. In 2008 she was a shortlisted nominee for the Bombay Sapphire Prize and in 2016 she received The Glass in Venice Award from Istituto Veneto, Venice, Italy.
Her work has been exhibited around the world and is a part of several public collections including Corning Museum of Glass, New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fè, Houston Fine Art Museum, Toledo Museum of Art, Mint Museum, Charlotte, Chrysler Museum of Art, Sunderland Glass Museum, UK, Museo Provincial de Bellas Artes, Buenos Aires, Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung, Munich, MUDAC, Lausanne and Castello Sforzesco Museum, Milan.

Girl Power

A series of ceramic plates for everyday use on which the artist has incorporated phrases associated with the empowerment of women.

It is part of a project that shows the dissonance that occurs between the social life and the family life of women and girls, that is, between public and private. When acts of violence or physical or verbal abuse occur in the home, they are usually silenced under the slogan “this is not discussed”. In the opposite sense, many people who have sexist behaviors in private, publicly try to moderate and show themselves "tolerant". All of this only showing the other side of patriarchy.

We women know that what is public is private and vice versa and with our struggles we say Enough to hypocrisy and double standards.

With the series "Girl Power" Levenson installs this reality of empowerment outside and inside our homes - In public and in private.
