The ephemeral society and the feminine figures are the most recurrent topics in the research work of Elena Monzo. They are described in each side of their obsession: the out-fit to comply with the mass culture standards and the maniacal attention to details, together with the need of reflecting a precise flawless image.

In 2012 the artist has took part to the project Twin Room in Havana (Cuba), part of the Festival de Arte Jovem, and has shown her works in solo shows at Galleria Traghetto in Venice and in Brescia at the Galleria Colossi. She was also invited in 2012 to the exhibition Homo Faber in Milan and to the show dedicated to the international movement of the pop-surralism Go with the Flow.
