Lavinia Xausa was born in 1992 in Bassano del Grappa, Italy. She studied at the faculty of Literature and Philosophy in Bologna where she earned her bachelor's degree with honors in Visual culture and media studies in 2015. In 2017 she accomplished her master’s degree in photography at AKV St. Joost in the Netherlands.
She works, lives and pretends to learn Dutch in Rotterdam, where she is an artist in residence by the Hamburger Community of Art at Roodkapje (2020-2021).
The center of her artistic practice consists in applying semiotics and sacred art research to an ongoing, participatory art practice, by involving groups of people on self-analysis and auto-recognition of their own role in history.
In 2018 she received the Research and Development grant awarded by CBK Rotterdam foundation (NL) for her project Further than Hip Hop and in 2019 she achieved the Stipendium for emerging Artists by the Mondriaan Fund. Her works have been shown at Noorderlicht International Photography Festival, (NL), Organ Vida (HR) and Tent (NL)
